A light drizzle fell as children and parents anxiously awaited Santa’s arrival Friday night at the annual Greenfield Christmas Festival. Giving the reindeer a night off, Ol’ St. Nick instead arrived on a ladder truck, much to the crowd’s delight. Revelers warmed up with hot chocolate and nibbled on kettle corn as the Brandywine Wind and Greenfield Community Choir filled the air with holiday music.
