The competition will be held on December 18.
Garish colours, approximate patterns or even dubious messages: the City of Rouen is organizing the first edition of the Normandy Ugly Christmas Sweater Championship on Sunday 18 December. It will be held from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Jardin des Contemplations, on the Place de la Cathédrale.
50 participants will present themselves in front of the spectators, responsible for designating the most beautiful ugly sweaters to the applause meter. A second parade will take place with the wearers of the 10 ugliest sweaters, which this time will be decided by a jury.
Gift certificates to be won
Each of them will be rewarded with gifts, namely 300 euros in gift certificates for the winner, 200 euros in gift certificates for his runner-up, 100 euros in gift certificates for the one who takes third place in the podium and finally 50 euros of gift certificates from fourth to tenth place. These will be valid at the merchants of the city participating in the operation. Everything will be animated by the music of the group Funky Muppets.
It is possible to register on the City of Rouen website until December 11. Places are limited to 50 participants.
