Two of the most famous Bryan natives are back home from Hollywood for a special event Saturday.

Raini and Rico Rodriguez will be at La Compania's Annual Car Show.

Their father, Roy Rodriguez, helped start the car club more than 30 years ago. Roy passed away last year, but the family and car club members wanted to continue the tradition.

The event will be held at the Brazos County Expo at 5827 Leonard Road in Bryan from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. In addition to the car show, there will be live entertainment, vendors and celebrity meet and greets.

The sibling actors will sign autographs from 12:30 to 2 p.m. and 3 to 4:30 p.m. Some other famous faces will join them. Calum Worthy, who played "Dez" on the Disney show, Austin and Ally, will also be there. Valente Rodriguez from the George Lopez Show and Blood In, Blood Out will also be a part of the meet and greets.

Friday, Raini and Rico spoke with News Three's Karla Castillo about the importance of continuing the tradition and making it a family-friendly event.

"To us, family is everything. And as long as we can keep it family-friendly and have everyone have a good time, that's what makes a great show for us," said Rico.

"And that was what my dad was all about," added Raini. "That's what he taught us kids. You know, family is the number one thing. Family is what's gonna help you get places. When he passed, we were in the middle of planning the show and so it just kind of felt right to continue on. I know that's what he would want to do."
