Caldwell Flowerland will once again host pictures with Santa on Saturday, Nov. 24. Mr. Claus will arrive at 329 Bloomfield Ave. in an antique Studebaker at 10 a.m. and will be available for photo-ops until 2 p.m.
Alex Rodrigues of Caldwell-based W8 Photography will set up a portable photography studio inside Flowerland. Children, as well as pets, are invited to pose with Santa in the winter wonderland created by Caldwell Flowerland owners Frank and Karen Della Santi.
Photo packages are $30 and pictures will be available the same day at The Frame Shop/Lovely Living Interiors, where framing will be offered and Christmas cards can be ordered. Parents can take their own photos if they wish.
Plus, take part in the new Holiday Treasure Hunt. Santa gnomes will be found in certain stores around town. Prizes will be handed out by a Christmas Elf at the Park Avenue kiosk.
The photos with Santa and Holiday Treasure Hunt are sponsored by The Caldwell Merchants Association. For more information, call 973-364-1124 or visit www.caldwellmerchants.com.
Many Caldwell shops will be staying open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays between Thanksgiving and Christmas to give shoppers extra time to make purchases locally.
The Caldwell Merchants Association slogan is “Shop Local, Dine Local, Be Local."
