With lights flashing on the Harker Heights Fire Department's fire truck, Santa made his entrance into Carl Levin Park last week.

Four-year-old Kennedy Doaty was one of the first children to see Santa and tell him all her Christmas wishes during the city's 8th Annual Frost Fest.

"I asked Santa for a walkie talkie bear, a walkie-talkie and a new dollhouse," she said, as she repeated her list on her way out of the tent.

The line to see Santa moved quickly, which was good for the Miller family. Linda Miller and her four of her children had arrived a little later then what they had planned and had to wait to see Santa. Linda Miller held their spot in line while the children played withinview.

"They had to be good all this week in school in order to come here and see Santa," said Miller.

Her children each had a list too. "I want earrings, a pony and makeup," said Ruby Miller, a Nolanville Elementary School student. Kenny Miller, one of her brothers, also a Nolanville Elementary School student, said he wanted a monster truck and a police car.

After seeing Santa, the Miller family enjoyed the rest of the evening's attractions, such as the Super Slide, kiddy train, vendors, and petting zoo.
