To promote next week’s Winter Fest, Lindenwood’s Campus Activity Board brought a reindeer on the quad for students and staff to take photos with.

Rad Reindeer was from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Friday. Students had the opportunity to take a photo with Jingles the reindeer and have it printed as a keepsake. 

Owner Mike Didion said Jingles is from Alaska and said her antlers were grown in three months and will lose them right after the holidays. 

Didion attached Jingles to a sleigh from Finland. The sleigh is designed for reindeers and is an Organ 1888 model.

Winter Fest will be at 6-8 p.m. on Dec. 7 on Evans Commons Lawn.

She is a proud St. Louisan and is passionate about being a part in the city's redemption. Look for the girl with the stickered out water bottle on campus and say hi.
