Families flocked to the West County EMS & Fire Protection District firehouse one at 223 Henry Avenue in Manchester Saturday to meet Santa and share their Christmas wishes. Attendees were also invited to bring toys to donate to the West County Firefighters' toy drive. This is the fourth year Santa has visited kids at the firehouse and coordinators said attendance was larger than ever. You can view the event in the slideshow below. "All I know is people are smiling and walking away happy. That's what matters," said Eric Heimos, one of the organizers. The toy drive lasts until December 15. Donations can be dropped off at any West County EMS & Fire Protection District station.
