Events spread Christmas cheer
Less than 24 hours after greeting attendees at Winterfest, Santa Claus made a return trip to Newark on Saturday morning to talk to local children at the George Wilson Center.
The annual Snack with Santa event, organized by the Newark Parks and Recreation Department, drew dozens of kids and their families for a morning of snacks, crafts and storytime.
Kids also had an opportunity for buy gifts for loved ones at Santa’s Secret Shoppe, at which local vendors sell inexpensive items.
