Santa Claus came to town this weekend as Newark marked the unofficial start of the Christmas season. The fun kicked off with the annual Winterfest celebration on the Academy Lawn, which included a tree lighting, roasted chestnuts and music and dance performances. In conjunction with Winterfest, more than 800 people ran in the Reindeer Run, which raised money for Special Olympics Delaware. On Saturday, Santa came to the George Wilson Center for the annual Snack with Santa event.
