Their new “North Pole on North Street” home from November 25 to December 24 will be Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses in Greenwich. The popular town tradition continues at this nursery where visitors can have their photo taken with Santa, meet the reindeer and also ride on the Winter Wonderland Carousel and the North Pole Polar Express Train. Parking is free.
Throughout the four weeks the reindeer will make Sam Bridge their home, children, adults, corporate groups and even pets (on leashes) can have their photo taken with Santa at Santa’s Village, sponsored by Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich. Photo packages begin at $29.99 and include a gift bag filled with promotions redeemable at participating downtown Greenwich stores.
