Santa Claus and his helpers from the Octagon Club sat outside the courthouse on Willipie Street, waiting to hear every boy and girl’s wish for Christmas. There were elaborate requests with many toys and simpler ones for just the children’s favorite treat.
Brooklyn Snyder, 8, and her older sister Morgan, 10, each wanted the exact same thing.

“It’s really great that they have all of this down here,” said Heidi Snyder, who brought her two daughters to the event downtown. “It’s great that everything is free and there is so much to do.”
