About the Event

The Magical Christmas Caroling Truck tradition was born Christmas Eve 1984 after a studio session, when 12 people decided to decorate an old dump truck with some twinkle lights and go Christmas caroling. Equipped with their drums, bass, keyboard, a few microphones and a lot of holiday spirit, they caroled the entire evening. The response from the 10-mile route was overwhelming and every Christmas Eve since, the carolers and the truck have made their appearance in the same neighborhoods. This is a non-profit community event organized every year by volunteers.
