Holiday Happenings at Bridgeport Village

Could you use a little extra holiday cheer this year? We invite you to leave your cares (and 2020!) behind and travel to Santa’s Workshop for some timeless family fun.   

There’s been a flurry of activity at Bridgeport Village and you never know when or where you might catch a glimpse of your favorite holiday character or the Jolly one himself.

“We are celebrating a little differently this year,” states Kimberly Blue, Regional Marketing Director. “We have re-imagined some traditional favorites, as well as introduced some new programs so that we can share holiday cheer safely and responsibly.”
