UGLY SWEATER CONTEST
Let’s harken back to a time when everyone wore sweaters during the holidays, but not just any sweater, ugly sweaters. Yes, you read that right … ugly sweaters or sweater vests. We want to see the ugliest Christmas/Holiday/Hanukkah sweaters you can purchase or create!
Entry into the contest is free with admission to the A HOLLY JOLLY CHRISTMAS. You must be wearing your sweater when you arrive for the event and leave it on until the Ugly Sweater Champion has been announced. Turtlenecks, t-shirts, sweatshirts or any shirt other than a sweater or sweater vest will not be accepted. No obscenity. The contest is open to all ages.
Audience members will vote for the champion. Winners receive the coveted Ugly Sweater trophy and two tickets to the FOREVER ELVIS! CONCERT.
So where do you get an ugly Christmas sweater? We don’t know. That’s your problem. We’ve got our own sweaters to find.
