Merry Millheim is hosted by the Millheim Business Community, a nonprofit organization that works to foster healthy economic and cultural development of Millheim and the Penns Valley region through community cooperation, entrepreneurial innovation and local governance, according to the group. According to the group, Merry Millheim will feature familiar attractions like craft making and cookie decorating, music performances and story time for youngsters.

They will go on with or without snow. The sleigh will be on display Friday between Bierlyâs Meat Market and Penns Valley Outfitters.
