Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Saint Nick has been making stops all around the Southern Tier this week.

On Friday, he was greeted by many children with wish lists during Vestal's Annual Family Christmas Carol Sing-a-Long and Tree Lighting.

There was pleanty of free hot cocoa, cider and doughnuts for everyone, in addition to performances by the Vestal Community Chorus and the Vestal High School Brass Ensemble.

But the main attraction for the young ones was getting to see Santa and being in the Christmas spirit.

"(I want) Go-Go's," said Michael Juriga of Vestal. "It's a game where you have two players and there are like two teams. You can have two or more teams. But if you snap a guy down...and they're like this small."

"I like seeing the Christmas tree light, and I don't know, being around Christmas," said Robert Lown of Vestal.

Many did drop off their letter to Santa including our own Action News Crew.
