The last pit stop should be back at the event room, where a sumptuous feast and refreshing drinks by Jimmy John’s await the exhausted travellers.
- Ugly Christmas Sweater – Bring out those unpleasant Christmas sweaters in awful shades of purple, green and brown, the sweaters your Grandma gives you every year. Everyone is required to look for a sweater to wear to the Ugly Christmas Sweater party.

You can decorate the venue with fun and bright decorations and offer a prize for the ugliest Christmas sweater.
