Holiday season kicks off in Cranston

A jolly arrival


On Saturday, Nov. 30, hundreds of children of all ages were on hand at Cranston’s Garden City Center to greet Santa Claus, his wife Mrs. Claus and their elves.

Families were able to visit Santa in his heated cabin by the Gazebo. Additionally, the event featured free hayrides provided by New Deal Horse & Carriage, face painting from W.O.W. Face Painting, hot chocolate, kettle corn, chowder from Legal Seafood and a table by Learning Brooke where children could write a letter to Santa.

Santa will be in his cabin every day through Dec. 24. For more information, visit
