Some area kids were able to get an early dose of Christmas fun.
IBM Endicott, the Schorr Family Firehouse Stage and the Johnson City Police department partnered up to throw a holiday party for the Helping Celebrate Abilities or HCA Building Blocks Pre-Schoolers and their families.
The kids were able to enjoy storytelling, music, face painting, a puppet show, food and appearances by mascots.
Even Santa Claus showed up in a special police outfit.
Organizers say it was great seeing more Excitement brought into the Firehouse Stage.
