Shop until you drop and get your ugly Christmas sweater ready in preparation for this year’s Christmas Fest Drawing and Ugly Sweater Contest on Friday, December 16 at 6 p.m. at the Marion City Stage, located at 45 North Main Street in Marion.
Between now through Friday, December 16, individuals who shop in downtown Marion will have a chance to win one of several fabulous gift card prize packages, some valued at more than $250.
For every $10 spent, individuals will receive a ticket at participating businesses that will be entered into the drawing. Winners must present with their ticket at the drawing on December 16 to claim their prize.
Before this year’s Christmas Fest Drawing, members of the public are encouraged to wear their tackiest Christmas sweater and participate in downtown’s inaugural Ugly Sweater Contest.

The person with the most votes will receive an ugly Christmas sweater trophy and $50 in cash.
