Fans are asked to help the holiday-themed contest by donning green, red or an ugly Christmas sweater – and can have their photos taken with one of Santa’s visiting elves who will make a special journey from the North Pole.

The family-friendly contest will feature holiday-themed entertainment throughout the night, including a performance by local star Crystal Gage, as well as other up-and-coming singers.
