Reindeer Festival Returns to Greenwich
Nov 02, 2017 08:08PM
Santa and his live reindeer—Dancer, Dasher and Prancer—are coming back for the 9th Annual Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Village, and return to “the North Pole on North Street” at Sam Bridge Nursery & Greenhouses in Greenwich, from November 24 to December 23. 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.
The community is invited to Sam Bridge for a “We’re Back Party” on November 24 from noon to 6pm; this is when Santa’s Village is officially open for photos with Santa. While waiting for the reindeer to arrive in the afternoon, everyone can enjoy special refreshments, and face painting and balloon art provided by Faces by Wells.
Throughout the four weeks, the reindeer will make Sam Bridge their home, thanks to Pepsi, the reindeer stable sponsor. 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. Rides on the Winter Wonderland Carousel and North Pole Polar Express Train are $4 per ride or $40 for a family package of 12 rides.
Hours for the Photos with Santa, train and carousel rides are Monday through Friday from noon to 6pm, and Saturday from 9am to 6pm. Reindeer feeding times will take place Monday through Saturday at 9am and 3:30pm. The reindeer will depart on December 22 but Santa will remain for photos Saturday from 9am to 6pm.
The Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Village are produced by TMK Sports & Entertainment, LLC.
