Rio Grande Valley residents can show off their wheels for a good cause on Dec. 16 in Weslaco.

Operation Christmas RGV is hosting a car show toy drive on International Boulevard where Ranch House Burgers used to be located.

The event is free for children, and they're collecting toys because they want to give a toy to every child who attends.

"I've grown up in a colonia. So I know firsthand that a lot of these colonias that we live in here in the Rio Grande Valley, they don't know what it is to open a gift in Christmas," Operation Christmas RGV President Emmanuel Martinez said.

There is a $25 entry fee to participate in the lighted car show. Community members can also donate a toy at any of the locations listed below.
