Christmas Village in Torrington
In Christmas Village, Santa welcomes his guests while seated on an elaborate throne in his tinsel decorated parlor and gives each of the children a toy.
In 1948 Carl Bozenski, Torrington’s Parks and Recreation Supervisor, invited Santa Claus to spend the three weeks before Christmas at Alvord Playground. Along for the trip from the North Pole came Santa’s reindeer and his helpers. Since that time, Santa has returned here each year. The hours on Christmas Eve will be 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Mrs. Claus will again be visiting Christmas Village this year and will be greeting visitors in her special room. The Christmas Village will be open through Christmas Eve.
