Uniques car club and Street Culture – a group that plans community events and advocates on behalf of car clubs – are holding a free car show, concert and toy giveaway from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 18 in Santa Ana’s Jerome Park.
In addition, the 4th Annual Toy Drive in the Barrio will also feature face painting, an appearance by Santa Claus and musical entertainment.
Those slated to perform include Mantra, Lil’ Social, Eder Chacon y sus Efectivos and Kike y su Norteño. There will also be an exclusive performance by Morgan Brown (daughter of artist Kurupt).
Radio station HOT 92.3 will also be on site.
The groups are in dire need of toy donations, as there is high demand every year, said Nasario Bastida, who is organizing the event along with Alex Chavez.
The event typically attracts about 2,000 children and their families, he said. Last year’s event drew about 1,500 kids, despite the inclement weather.
“Even though the rain was coming down families were still waiting, even lining up around the block, to receive toys,” said Bastida.
Toys will be collected in the morning and distributed in the afternoon.
