LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- It's time to pull out those rhinestone-covered Christmas sweaters and -- if possible -- grow a mustache.
A 5K race called the Ugly Sweater Run takes place at 2 p.m. Saturday in downtown Lawrence. Near the starting line at Watson Park there will be snow machines, reindeer games and holiday music.
Hot chocolate will flow freely during the race. After the run, there will be awards for things like the best mustache and sweater. Adult beverages also will be available.
Participants are urged to bring a toy to donate to Toys for Tots.
