The Magical Christmas Caroling Truck


Christmas 2000 Press Release

Enjoy A Little Magic This Christmas!

Toluca Lake, North Hollywood and Studio City Welcome The
Magical Christmas Caroling Truck For Its 17th Year

The Magical Christmas Caroling Truck, an annual local tradition since 1984, is ready to make its debut appearance in the new millennium.

The "magical truck" is a 45-foot tractor-trailer transformed into an enchanting Christmas float adorned with thousands of lights, and equipped with a 6,000-watt sound system. Over 200 singers and dancers will serenade local residents with favorite carols, while Santa makes his rounds on his souped-up, all-weather sleigh.

The event that started many years ago with only a small group has since grown to include many local families, friends and neighbors, ranging from novice carolers to industry-professionals. It has touched thousands of lives over the years, and has been the ingredient that makes Christmas extra-special to the many children in the area.

"This is a unique opportunity that allows us to help foster the sense of community-spirit in our neighborhood", comments Richard Holbrook, the event's creator. "The caroling truck brings a sense of small-town charm to the middle of a big city."

On Christmas Eve, the Magical Christmas Caroling Truck can be seen in the streets of Toluca Lake and North Hollywood between dusk and eleven PM, rain or shine. Once the truck is in your area, you can tune your radio to 88.3 FM to hear the music. The route covers the neighborhoods between Tujunga and Clyborne Avenues (west/east borders) and Magnolia Blvd. and Riverside Drive. (north/south borders).
