Where better to celebrate the ugly sweaters so associated with Christmas than Alexandria’s yarn store Fibre Space?
At a free event tonight (Tuesday) from 608 p.m. at Fibre Space (1319 Prince Street), guests can either wear their ugly sweaters or finish working on their sweaters with friends.
The store’s annual holiday party is scheduled to include a hot cocoa bar with a variety of toppings, a raffle for prizes, and a gift for every purchase over $50.
If you’re looking for a place to wear your new ugly sweater, there are several sweater-related parties this weekend around Alexandria.
- Hi-Tide Ugly Sweater Party on Friday (Dec. 20) from 7-9 p.m. at Vola’s Dockside Grill and Hi-Tide Lounge (101 N. Union Street). The event is scheduled to include a gift card for the person with the ugliest sweater.
- First Annual Winter Wonderland Party on Friday (Dec. 20) from 6-8:30 p.m. at Scramble (5412 Eisenhower Avenue).

- Ugly Sweater Party at The Garden on Saturday (Dec. 21) from 1-4 p.m. at The Garden (1503 Mount Vernon Avenue).
