WOONSOCKET â Santa Claus was seated in his cabin at the mini-park near City Hall Thursday evening, chatting with all the children who stopped by with their friends and relatives.
Emily DiTomasso, 9, and her cousin, Allison Vuona, 5, both of Woonsocket, shared a moment with Santa as Allison's mom, Becky, looked on.
Emily later said she asked the Jolly Olâ Fella for a Tangled doll, which has hair like that of Rapunsel, and slippers. Allison, meanwhile, asked for a Snow White doll and also for some footwear for the home, Stompies, while telling Santa the rest of her wish list.
