Christmas time comes but once a year . . . and the same is true about the Greenwich Reindeer Festival and Town Stroll. Being Greenwich residents, we’re happy to report that we went last year and we had a blast. Yes, it’s true that one of our major highlights was getting cupcakes off of a food truck, but we’re a bit food-obsessed and crazy-headed.
So, we’re excited to share that the fun is back this year! Just look at some of the major highlights:
Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Workshop

You can also get photos with Santa (pets allowed) starting at $29.99 from 12-6 M-F, Saturday 9-6, and Sunday 9-5. $5 from each photo package goes to Kids in crisis and McArdle’s will donate $5 per wreath bought on 12/5 and 12/6.
