Cruz Stabile of Nashville, Tennessee, 4, got a close-up view of Cupid, a 9-year-old reindeer, during a live reindeer event Saturday at Santa’s Toys in Santa Claus. Stabile came to the event while visiting his grandmother, who lives in St. Meinrad, for Thanksgiving. Attendees had the opportunity to view and pet the reindeer. Shelby Coffey of Brookville tended to the animals and said the reindeer are two of the 10 from Whitetail Acres Tree Farm and Nursery in Brookville, a small town in Franklin County near the Indiana-Ohio border.
