Miracle on 34th Street - December 12, 2019


Join Raymond Recreation on Thursday, December 12th as we step back in time to the Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City and enjoy “Miracle on 34th Street” at the Greater Boston Stage Company in Stoneham, MA.  Our first stop will be to the Burlington Mall to see the amazing holiday decorations, do a little shopping and have lunch on your own.  There is a great variety of restaurants at the mall including Legal Seafoods, the Cheesecake Factory, the Friendly Toast, Johnny Rockets and even more options in the grand food court.  After the mall we will head to the highlight of our day to see Miracle on 34th Street.  In this Christmas classic, Kris Kringle fills in for an intoxicated Santa in Macy's annual Thanksgiving Day parade. Kringle proves to be such a hit that he is soon appearing regularly at the main store in Manhattan. When Kringle surprises customers and employees alike by claiming that he really is Santa Claus, it leads to a court case to determine his mental health and, more importantly, his authenticity.
