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.

The organization is called the Divas of Mercer County, although President, Kiera Pollard, indicated that name may be changed since men have joined.

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.

There also will be a photographer at the expo to take family and individual pictures in front of a holiday setting for a charge. Several packages are to be available for purchase
