PHOTOS: Wilmington's Annual Tree Lighting

Santa arrived on Saturday to light the Town Common trees.

With Snow flurries and a cold that turned cheeks cherry red, Wilmington held its  annual tree lighting Saturday night on Wilmington Town Common.

There was hot chocolate, hayrides  and an ice sculpture that helped over 200  Wilmington residents come together to Listen to the Christmas Story, sing holiday songs and await the arrival of Santa.

With the help of the Wilmington Police Deparetment, the Fire Department, and the  Wilmington  Minutemen Company, Santa  arrived at  6 p.m. to turn the switch and  light the Common in its holiday colors.
