The last night they have a thing called a "kitch party." Everyone dresses up in really tacky clothes (usually of the opposite gender) and stage sarcastic skits to poke fun at themselves and each other. Then they pick winners based on clothing and performance. I am not sure I fully understand this whacky cultural practice, but it seemed like fun.
