Rudolph the Reindeer will make a star appearance at the centre:mk’s Christmas parade on Friday November 16.
The parade starts at 4.30pm from door 1, near Marks and Spencer – with Santa and his trusty Reindeers leading the procession down to the Land Of Enchanted Dreams Christmas display in Middleton Hall.
The news that real reindeer have now been booked for the display was revealed when thecentre:mk enabled advance bookings for the grotto and train ride on its website this week.
Melanie Beck, head of marketing and communications, said “We asked Santa if he could bring Rudolph and his friends to lead the procession this year as we wanted children to see the real magic that this year’s Land Of Enchanted Dreams display encapsulates.
“There is nothing more magical about Christmas than seeing a child in awe and excitement of our Christmas displays and we hope that our furry friends will make Christmas extra special for everyone this year.”
