Photo Op Special Event! Santa and Mrs. Merry Claus Visit the Historic One-Room Green District Schoolhouse

11/18/2017 - 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Green District School
South Canterbury Road (RT 169) at Library Road - Canterbury, CT 06331

Free and open to the public. Children of all ages are welcome, including those who are only young at heart. However, those young in years need to be accompanied by an adult.


Come by and visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus—the real ones! It turns out that they really like history buffs—who knew? They want to hear your Christmas wish list and have their picture taken with you. The November timing makes it early enough in the season to allow you to feature that photo on your family’s Christmas cards.

Mark your calendar to join us for some yummy cookies and the Clauses, all while enjoying the restored 19th century one-room schoolhouse decked out in holiday finery. Be sure to bring your own camera.

Please know this photo op isn’t strictly for children. Last year when the Clauses visited us, loads of adults and even whole families had their pictures taken too. Everyone’s welcome.
