The day also includes pictures, entertainment, and wreath making classes.

Activities are to be preceded by a 5 kilometer fundraising run/walk. Organizers say the run/walk includes ugly sweater contests, hot chocolate stations, fake mustaches, and festive music. Proceeds from the ugly sweater 5 k run/walk go to the Mercer County Fire Department toy drive. The charge to participate in the run/walk is $15, or $5, plus a new toy. Registration for the run/walk is the morning of December 7th from 7:30 until 8 o'clock at the Princeton Elementary School commons. The run/walk itself is that morning from 8 until 10 o'clock around the school.

The expo is that day, December 7th, from from 9 until 2 o'clock in the gymnasium at Princeton Elementary School. It's called the Winter Wonderland Expo.

Persons taking a canned good to the expo can receive a free picture with Santa, Mrs. Claus, and elves between 10 o'clock and Noon. The canned goods will be donated to the Mercer County Food Pantry.
