Wear Your Ugly Sweater on Friday, December 15


Get FREE Tickets to Downtown Ice on National Ugly Sweater Day

Ugly sweaters are never ugly on #NationalUglySweaterDay!

On Friday, December 15, the Marketing staff of VTA will be handing out FREE tickets to Downtown Ice while supplies last.

What’s the catch? You HAVE to be wearing your ugly sweater.

Show up at one of three light rail stations from 7:30 am – 9:30 am:
  • Mountain View Light Rail Station
  • Tasman Light Rail Station
  • Paseo de San Antonio Light Rail Station (Northbound)
Look for a VTA employee wearing a yellow vest on top of their ugly sweater on the light rail platform. If you’re wearing your ugly sweater you’ll get to take a photo for VTA’s social media pages. (You may opt out of the photo.) The VTA employee will then present you with a pair of tickets to Downtown Ice. That’s it!

If you can’t make it within the specified time frame or to any of those stations, you still have a chance! Here’s how:
  • Take a selfie or have someone take a photo of you in your ugly sweater
  • Upload that photo on December 15 onto Twitter, Instagram, or VTA’s Facebook Wall
  • Use the hashtags #helloVTA and #NationalUglySweaterDay
