Santa and Mrs Claus have arrived on the East Coast

Santa and the Mrs arrived on Milford beach via the Mistletoe sail boat (AKA The Reiki Wake) this past Saturday. Coming from North Pole was quite the adventure. Santa says navigating the sail boat was a bit different then the sleigh. He says the reindeer's do the navigation for the Christmas eve trip. But they made it! They are here on the East coast. I'm told they have a few stops and some elves to speak and have meetings with about Christmas eve deliveries and then they will make their way to Oxford for one of our Open House Days. They will be here on Sunday the 28th about 12:30 pm. They tell me they have a couple of hours to talk to kids and take pictures so come on by the farm and visit with the Clauses! Dream Come True Farm 82 Freeman Rd Oxford Ct Open House November 27th and 28th 11-4.
