With midterms winding down at the Academy for Classical Education, they are showing their holiday spirit with an ugly sweater parade.

It's ACE's 4th annual parade, and this year, they are kicking it up a notch.

ACE's king and queen for the day led the parade with their mascot, Talon.

As hundred of kids showed off their ugliest holiday sweater, Principal Laura Perkins says it has become a tradition everyone looks forward to.

"They get to go out, they get to walk around and be with their friends, socialize, hear the band -- it's always a fun time. The most fun, though, is the fact that we are a K-11 school, so all of our students get to get together at times like this," says Perkins.

Perkins says since they normally wear uniforms, the kids love getting to express themselves through their ugliest sweaters.
