For more than a decade, the annual Rock for Tots event has been taking a page from the North Pole as far as rounding up toys for the Sacramento Salvation Army goes. This year, bands like the Scratch Outs, Ghost Town Rebellion (pictured), Jacob Paul and the Heartbeat, the Moans and more will rock the halls to benefit the kids. Attendees can bring a new, unwrapped toy in exchange for a raffle ticket to win prizes from local vendors like Spanish Fly Hair Garage, a date night at Red Rabbit, tattoos from American Graffiti, ice skating passes, skateboards from Blood Wizard and more.
