There was a line of children as long as the street to see the crowd favorite at Saturdayâs Childrenâs Hometown Holiday in downtown Wapakoneta. Santa Claus and his helpers from the Octagon Club sat outside the courthouse on Willipie Street, waiting to hear every boy and girlâs wish for Christmas. There were elaborate requests with many toys and simpler ones for just the childrenâs favorite treat.
Brooklyn Snyder, 8, and her older sister Morgan, 10, each wanted the exact same thing.
âI want a Monster High Doll,â Brooklyn said. âI want it to play with.â
