Reindeer from Reindeer Farms in Alamo Township will visit the Historic Village from 4-7 p.m. for children to pet and ask questions about their travels.

The Santa connection for reindeer is relatively recent, having first appeared in the famous poem “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” in 1823. Rudolph debuted in 1939, when Chicago’s Montgomery Ward stores gave kids a book featuring his story.
