Warning: these photos are graphic. You may need to look away and take deep breaths. Denver brought out the worst of its eye-searing Christmas cardigans on Saturday at City Park for the 2012 Ugly Sweater Run, which included contests for everything from best mustache to ugliest sweater, hot-chocolate aid stations and plenty of reindeer games.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
