Santa and his live reindeer—Dancer, Dasher, Prancer and Blitzen—are coming back to town for the 6th Annual Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Workshop at McArdle’s Florist & Garden Center from November 28 to December 24. A welcoming We’re Back Party with refreshments, face painting and balloon artists will be held on November 28 from noon to 6pm. The official opening and ribbon cutting will be attended by Courtney Kane of News 12 Connecticut while Santa’s Workshop, sponsored by Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich, will offer photo opportunities with Santa.

The reindeer will make McArdle’s their home until December 23, thanks to Reindeer Stable Sponsor, Pepsi. Feeding times will take place daily at 9 am and 4 pm.

At Santa’s Workshop, which will be open through Christmas Eve, photo packages begin at $29.99 and include a gift bag filled with promotions redeemable at participating downtown Greenwich stores. Everyone who has their photo taken can enter a raffle to win a Mercedes-Benz pedal car. Hours for the Photos with Santa are weekdays from noon to 6pm, Saturday from 9am to 6pm and Sunday from 9am to 5pm.

Throughout the festival, there will be a Kids in Crisis Giving Tree at McArdle’s. The Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Workshop was created and is produced by TMK Sports & Entertainment, LLC.
