"Rummage up the Ugliest Sweaters you can find and celebrate the Holidays by participating in the best 5k of the year.  Join thousands of runners and walkers from around the nation at a local Ugly Sweater Run near you. If you’ve never run a 5k before, this is a great way to burn some calories before receiving hot chocolate and a choice of Sam Adam’s Winter Lager, Boston Lager, or Angry Orchard Hard Cider.  All you have to do is register online to join in the fun. All kids 8 and under are FREE. If they would like a hat and mustache, you can purchase a kids ticket during checkout for $10."

"An exhibition of Multiples. Multimatter began as “Printed Matter” years ago as an exhibition of prints and now it’s morphed into more. The means of production of non-paper items has improved and with that brings up new types of items. We’ll see prints, but then there’ll be plush, ceramics and more."
