A New Iberia native who is now a Disney star was in his hometown today to spread some holiday cheer.

Christian J. Simon, who appears as Leo Webb on Sydney to the Max and voices Darwin Watterson on The Amazing World of Gumball, hosted a Christmas event today.

There was music, food, giveaways and a meet and greet, and Simon was given a key to the city.

"I love giving back to the community, and Christmas is my favorite time of year," Simon said. "I'm just really happy to be here today."

The event was held Sunday afternoon at the Sliman Theater in downtown New Iberia, and was open to everyone.
