Universal Studios has Extended their July 4th Celebrations All Weekend Long from Saturday, July 2nd through Monday, July 4th – Along With Spectacular Fireworks and Live Musical Performances

Expect to hear some celebrating. Pets may need special care if they are sensitive to loud noises. Dazzling nightly fireworks displays, live music performances, specially themed décor and more, are all included in the price of admission to the theme park.

From the moment guests walk along the iconic red carpet and enter the theme park, they will be immersed in July 4th festivities from themed décor to the sounds of a fife and drum band.

Shop Toluca Lake

Dear Tolucans,

Your local merchants appreciate your support through these strange and unchartered times. Small businesses EVERYWHERE have had to either close temporarily due to the services they provide or play this day by day adjusting hours and services provided. Please know that those of us who are open are doing everything we can to create an environment that is safe for all Tolucans.

Our lovely customers have been asking “what can we do to help our favorite small business?”

Here are a few tips:

  • Merchant’s outgoing voicemail messages, websites or signs on shop windows will inform you of their current plans.
  • Visit your Chamber of Commerce websites for merchant phone or email information. Some of your favorite merchants can be found at:
  • Purchase gift cards online today for local merchants and use them when this is over. Hold your existing gift cards for later use.
  • Order take out or delivery from your local restaurants. This might be safer than waiting in line for an hour at Costco! PLUS food distributors have PLENTY of food and NEED to supply those that are capable of take out or delivery.
  • Be kind. Be patient. No need to OVER buy at Trader Joe’s or Pavillions etc., as they will be allowed to stay open.
  • Please thank those that are able to stay open especially in Grocery Markets and Doctor’s offices. We appreciate you!

Toluca Lake’s Fritz Coleman

Fritz Coleman may be retiring from his day job, but as he has only been the Honorary Mayor of Toluca Lake since the Fall of 1994; we will require he remain in his role for at least another 15 years to get our 40!

Fritz has been a real friend to the Toluca Lake Chamber, supporting our events, fund raisers and local village businesses. We will miss him as weatherman at 5 and 11 on NBC4 but now he will have time to follow his passion of giving of himself in dedication of time and talent, and raising funds and awareness for countless charitable causes. At a time like this we need more Fritz Colemans in this world.

Congratulations Fritz!
