Santa and his live reindeer made a stop in Greenwich for the annual Reindeer Festival at Sam Bridge Nursery. 
Organizers say the annual tradition is designed to bring families and the community together with a mission to help children. 
The Bridge Family has been operating the nursery for 93 years and this is its eighth annual festival.
Visitors took photos with Santa and got to experience live reindeer.
Benefits from the festival go to support the Kids in Crisis foundation with emergency shelter, crisis counseling and education programs for local children of all ages.
“We get to give back, it’s important to us, so a portion of every Santa photo goes to Kids in Crisis, and we host a giving-tree, and we are a Toys for Tots donation,” said Sam Bridge Nursery staff Maggie Bridge.
Visitors can see Santa at the Sam Bridge nursery until Dec. 23.
