Santa arrives in Fairfield Nov. 28

Fairfield Chamber of Commerce’s annual Santa’s Arrival will be held on Nov. 28, at 10 a.m.

Santa Claus, played by Joe Skarupa, a perennial Santa-About-Town, will arrive by hook-and-ladder down Reef Road at 10 a.m. He will sit in the gazebo until about 2 p.m. to listen to the wishes of children. Santa’s elves will give each child a small holiday gift item sponsored by Bankwell.

The children’s petting zoo will return, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., weather permitting, sponsored by TVEyes, as well as horse and buggy rides, sponsored by Bigelow Tea, Fairfield University, Fairfield Circle Inn, and LCP General Contractors, LLC, from approximately 10-2. Plan B restaurant will sell breakfast sandwiches/coffee and mini hamburgers to the public, plus a variety drinks. Gazebo holiday music provided by The Computer Doctor, Fairfield.

The Chamber has invited town organizations to distribute information and/or sell items to benefit and support their programs. There is no charge to participate, and all non-profits are welcome. It’s a great time to let the general public know who you are and what you do, and to promote your organization. However, because space is limited, if an organization would like to participate in this free event, please call the Chamber office at 255-1011.

November 28th is also “Small Business Saturday,” a national campaign started by American Express to promote, and remind people, to “shop local” and support local businesses. The Chamber will hand out “I Love Fairfield” button pins, with each “Shop Local” flier.

This event is made available to the community through the generous support of the Chamber’s membership, specifically: ACBI Insurance/ Event Sponsor and Massage Envy.

In the case of heavy snow or rain, the event will be canceled. For current information, please check the Chamber’s website: FairfieldCTChamber.com or call the office: 203-255-1011.
