Cape Cod Skating Club to host Ugly Sweater Skate

Don your ugliest Christmas sweater for a good cause

Strap on your ice skates and don your ugliest Christmas sweater this Saturday for a good cause. On December 14 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., the Cape Cod Skating Club will host an Ugly Sweater Skate at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center.

Admission is $5 per person. Skate rentals will be available for an extra fee.

All proceeds from admission will benefit the Cape Cod Times Needy Fund.

Enjoy an afternoon of skating and enter the ugly sweater contest. If you aren't sure what constitutes an ugly Christmas sweater, you are pretty safe with anything with a lot of red and green, with snowmen, penguins or reindeers. Pompoms and other 3D bits and baubles will earn extra ohs and ahs. A Google search puts the birth of the ugly Christmas sweaters party in or around the year 2001.
