Jungle Bells is the name of this week's Playground Games and you can win the #34 Volkswagen Beetle. There's also the Horizon Tour co-op championships as ever.

PR Stunts

This season's PR Stunts are the Base Jump danger sign, the Barranco Trail Blazer and the Bulevar Speed Trap. As with all the seasonal PR Stunts in Forza Horizon 5, you’ll need to check that your car is eligible and in the right class. The menu button in the Festival Playlist gives you the car restrictions! Each one earns you a wheelspin.


The seasonal championships are Feliz Navidad, with the Hoonigan Escort as the prize, Oh, Deer with the Raindeer Antlers reward, and the '20 Supra GR Championship which gives you the Toyota Race Suit.

The latter will be a nice chance to use one of the starter cars again!
