Start combing through the closets and up in the attic! You need to find that ugly sweater that you wear just once a year! Friday, December 16th is Ugly Sweater Day and the Ellsworth Chamber of Commerce wants your picture in your "finest"!

Since 2015, the Ellsworth Chamber of Commerce has championed Ugly Sweater Day! Back then they held the first City Wide Ugly Sweater day, and an attempt at the  Guinness Book of World Records.  Schools, businesses, organizations and individuals joined in, including Ellsworth's Legal Community doing a group photo on the Court House steps.

Please take a photo of you and your office, class, or group of friend in your Ugliest Sweater and email the photo to the Chamber so it can add it to their Facebook page on Friday December 16th. Photos may be emailed to
