(WBIR) It's still three and a half weeks away from Thanksgiving, but parts of East Tennessee are already looking toward Christmas, but it's all for a good cause.

Santa himself helped kick off a local toy drive to get everyone in the giving spirit.

The "Toys for Tots" drive collects new gifts for children during the holidays.

They rode from the Sevier County fairgrounds to Knox Harley. While Sunday was a good time for the bikers, December 25 is when they have some real fun.

"Man, you know, just looking, the big thing on Christmas morning when we give these toys out, is all the kids you see that come out is you know that these bikers are the reason they had a Christmas on Christmas morning," JT Cash, one of the event organizers said.

Toys For Tots: Local events, drop off locations

The Toys for Tots drive lasts through December. You can drop off toys across the country at 'Toys R Us' or 'Babies R Us' store locations.
