The Magical Christmas Caroling Truck
Every year on Christmas Eve from 5-11 pm, the Magic Christmas Caroling Truck drives through the north Los Angeles neighborhood of Toluca Lake. Decorated like a holiday parade float, the festive flatbed is laden with volunteer musicians and singer who carol through the community.
The tradition began in 1984 when a group of 12 studio musicians wrapped a recording session and decided it would be fun to go play Christmas carols in their neighborhood from the back of a pickup truck. Today over 200 volunteer singers and dancers perform to a backing track recorded in the same studio, with new songs added every year. The route covers 10 miles of streets in Toluca Lake and North Hollywood.
