The Reindeer are Back at McArdles in Greenwich!

Department stores might have their decorations up by Halloween, the catalogs start arriving shortly thereafter, but for me, Christmas gets real when the reindeer come to town.  2013-12-06 15.16.11

Back for their annual gig, the reindeer have returned to McArdles Florist and Garden Center in Greenwich!

Presumably to rest up for their big night-and to stay out of the way of the elves!- the visiting reindeer have been a holiday tradition at McArdles since 2008.

The Reindeer Festival is the centerpiece of this weekends’  Greenwich Holiday Weekend Stroll, but they’re ready for your visit every day from now until, well, YOU KNOW, click above links for hours and other events.

Their Reindeer Stable is right out front, so it’s very easy to just walk up right up and say hello from the sidewalk.

Located at 49 Arch Street, McArdles is easy to get to, moments off exit 3 of  I-95. Predictably weekends are busy, but 2 blocks past McArdles is Greenwich Ave, with lots of parking and so many other things to see and enjoy!
