 Nana Hayes, 5, is a little timid in revealing to Santa, aka Tom Farrell, that she wants a computer for Christmas. The 20th Annual YMCA of Austin Children’s Christmas Party was held at the Delco Center Saturday. One of Austin’s largest holiday community events served over 2,500 kids offering them games, snacks, holiday arts and crafts and a personal visit with Santa Claus. Every child received a wrapped holiday gift as well. The party is free and open to the public and is a collaboration of several agencies including SafePlace, the Salvation Army, and the Housing Authority of the City of Austin.
