It's fiesta time in Rockford!

Get ready hockey fans, because there's going to be quite the fiesta in Rockford.

On Nov. 16, the IceHogs and Corona will be joining forces to provide fans with a Mexican-style celebration during the team's matchup against Houston. The first 2,500 fans will receive official Los IceHogs maracas, but one of the biggest surprises is that Rockford is becoming a hotspot for celebrities. That's right, Nickelodeon star Dora the Explorer will be in attendance!

Watch out for the paparazzi.

But the fun doesn't stop there. The players will be rocking all sorts of yellows, greens, reds and oranges in the team's Los IceHogs jerseys. And in case you had any doubt, yes, that is Hammy showing off his Movember look.

Thanks to IceHogs forward and now part-time model Brandon Pirri, we get a little taste of what's to come next week.

Note: Guests are highly encouraged to match the jersey numbers by also wearing a festive sombrero.

Qu hermoso!

If you want to join the fun and maybe even bring some chips and salsa to share, get your tickets here.
