Holly Days has had a 5K race for more than a decade, in 2014 a new theme was adopted - “The Ugly Sweater 5K” hosted by the Westmont Rotary Club and is a Westmont Holly Days event. The race will be held on Saturday, November 30, 2019 at 9 a.m. as part of the Westmont Holly Days Winter Festival and the Downtown Westmont Small Business Saturday. There will be a number of activities throughout the day leading up to the Frosty & Friends Parade at 5 p.m.
Just about everyone has received an obnoxious holiday sweater that they simply do not wear, so this is your chance. Prizes will be awarded for ugliest sweaters in addition to best race times.
Proceeds from the event will go to the Westmont Rotary Club to support their various charitable causes, specifically their scholarship program.
