On Sunday morning, we were hoping for clearing skies and ended up with half of our wishes coming true. It is a hard choice to cancel a long-planned event so we went ahead despite a bit of a drizzle. The Friends of Princeton and Princeton Parks and Recreation Committee set up their display and tables along with Sharon Norman and Deb Mann at 3:30 p.m. Other “wheels” started arriving shortly after to be ready for the start of the event at 4. From talking to everyone, we had around 115 youngsters along with their families who enjoyed the treats from the nine “wheels” participants.

Mostly it was clear with a bit of misting here and there and so we decided to have the games earlier than planned. We had six musical chairs groupings and a costume dance-off with prizes for the winners.

Additionally, the treats committee judged and awarded prizes of an outside Halloween decoration to the most creative “wheels” participants. The first prize went to the Princeton Library and helpers for their Scooby Doo theme, second prize to Tara Dwelley and third prize to the St. Croix Regional Health Center and their staff.


Finally from the treats committee, a very very special thank you and appreciation to those who made and then set up their fun displays for the children and their families to enjoy. It is important that our small Town of Princeton continues to come together as a community and continues to have and support these events.
