Ugly Sweater Run
December 12th l 9 am
You’ve bought your ugly sweater, maybe worn it to a party or two, but you aren’t ready to put it away just yet–you are in luck. This Saturday head to the National Harbor for an Ugly Sweater Run. The event isn’t limited to the DC area so if you are traveling, check out their other dates and cities. You do get some extras such as a knit hat, unlimited hot chocolate, and a Samuel Adams beer (if you are of age) but at the very least you get to wear that ugly sweater one more time. Tickets are currently $40 and will increase to $50 the day of the race. Find out more information and get registered here.
December 12th & 13th l 11:30 am
Tis’ the season to meet you favorite Nationals players and have some good old fashioned family fun. There will be an opportunity to meet your favorite players, improve your baseball skills, a giant slide, games, and Santa is going to stop by as well. Tickets are still available both Saturday and Sunday and can be purchased here. Don’t forget to bring a toy to donate to a child in need!
Still happening in the city is the Downtown Holiday Market, go if you haven’t already!
