Bring an unwrapped toy for the Toys for Tots Bin and pay only $5. You receive a sample of each competition chili in a 2 oz. cup, plus one bowl after judging.  This includes:  a potato, cheese, sour cream, chives and a side of cornbread.

No Toy? No problem.  Pay $10 and enjoy the same.


The judging will take place at 5:30pm.

We want to see the ugliest holiday sweaters you can purchase or create! Decorate a sweater or sweater vest with your materials of choice; as long as it's over-the-top and ugly, you're good to go.

Turtlenecks, sweatshirt and long or short-sleeved t-shirts will not be accepted. You may wear such items underneath an ugly Christmas sweater vest, but it will not be considered part of your sweater and therefore not eligible for judging. You may add to or alter your Christmas sweater however you like… felt, yarn, LEDs, plastic, clock gears, Christmas trees, ornaments, buttons, etc. How will the Ugliest Christmas Sweater Champion be determined? Everyone will have the opportunity to vote for the champion. You may not vote for yourself. You must vote for someone. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Remember, this is supposed to bring laughter! Be creative! Be competitive! But, most of all have fun!
