Toluca Lake Open House
The Christmas Truck will not be making an appearance in Toluca Lake this December 2nd. Apologies to all our supporters.
Over the years, we have had inquiries as to why the Truck did not appear at various "Open House" events. It is always our delight to bring carols, smiles and joy to our community and donations have never been an issue on our willingness nor availability to appear. If we were requested to appear at an event, the decision was based mainly on scheduling, volunteer staff, safety and local city requirements.
We are beginning preparations for this year's Caroling Truck. It has been an amazing honor to bring this tradition to families for 33 years. This video we did a few years ago shows what this tradition has become and it also has pictures of our small beginnings from the mid-80's. See you soon!
If you live in Toluca Lake or North Hollywood, California, you may already know about the Magical Christmas Caroling Truck, a local phenomenon that happens every year on Christmas Eve.
Since 1984, the sixty-two foot tractor-trailer, adorned with magnificent Christmas scenes and thousands of sparkling lights, has been spreading Yuletide cheer in the neighboring communities. Over 200 singers and dancers, accompanied by a 20,000 watt sound system, serenade local residents with Christmas carols.
If you live in the route area, come out on Christmas Eve and join in. Once the Truck is in your area, you can tune into the music at FM 95.1 and listen in. If you don't live on the route, print out the map of approximate locations and times, pack up the family in the car, find us and join in. It is very easy to find The Caroling Truck; just roll down your car window and listen!
