CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) — People on the island not only got to enjoy a look at La Posada but to give back to their community as well Friday night.

The party held on Jackfish Avenue for the past 13 years allows people to donate an unwrapped toy to the Marine Corps 'Toys For Tots.'

While the gifts are collected neighbors also get to celebrate while watching the decorated boats with Christmas lights.

Island residents say every year means so much to them.

On Saturday you can watch the La Posada lighted boat parade live here on 3News.
