Santa and his live reindeer are returning to Greenwich for Greenwich Reindeer Festival & Santa’s Workshop. Children, adults, and pets (on leashes) can have their photo taken with Santa, meet the reindeer — Dancer, Dasher and Prancer.

The community is invited to Sam Bridge for a “We’re Back Day” on Friday, Nov. 26, from 12 noon to 6 p.m., when Santa’s Workshop officially opens for photos with Santa at the 13th annual event.

While waiting for the reindeer to arrive in the afternoon, everyone can enjoy special refreshments and other special activities. For this year, the 13th annual event, the new Santa’s Workshop provides more space for families while they wait in line for their photo with Santa.

A portion of all photos with Santa will be donated to Kids In Crisis, a non-profit organization based in Greenwich. A Kids In Crisis Giving Tree will also be available for people to support their important mission.
