The first TWO destinations the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour will be stopping off at have been revealed. You know that it is nearly Christmas, when the bright red Coca-Cola Truck rocks up at towns and cities across the country.
The 14-tonne red lorry is decorated with fairy lights and fans are normally able to enjoy a can of Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Diet Coke or Coca-Cola Classic in a 'winter wonderland' setting.
And the first two stops for the 2023 Truck Tour have been revealed by the brand - and it's starting soon! The Coca-Cola Truck will first stop off at Dublin, at the RDS Simmonscourt, between Thursday, November 30, and Sunday, December 3.
Then, between Friday, December 8, and Sunday, December 10, it will visit Belfast's Titanic Quarter. As of yet, Coca-Cola has not announced any further stops on the Truck Tour.
This year, you will have to book ticketed slots to visit the Coca-Cola Truck. There is a €2 fee per ticket, with all proceeds going towards Coca-Cola’s Christmas partnership with the Irish Youth Foundation. You can book a maximum of four tickets per transaction.
On each day, there are two sessions to choose from - the first, between 2pm and 5pm, while the second runs between 6pm and 9pm. As well as seeing the iconic Coca-Cola Truck, there will be local food vendors, fun festive experiences and music as part of Coca-Cola's The Real Magic Experience.
It comes after the famous Holidays Are Coming advert returned to TV screens on Friday, November 10. In addition to the advert, Coca‑Cola will has also launched its new 2023 Christmas campaign, 'The World Needs More Santas', which celebrates the spirit of Santa Claus in all of us.
More dates and locations for the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour 2023 are expected to be announced in the coming days and weeks - with fans in the West Midlands hoping it will return to the region. For the last two years, the most local destination was Wolverhampton - but that wasn't without a "last-minute technical hitch" in 2021.
In previous years the Coca-Cola Truck has also visited Merry Hill Shopping Centre in Dudley, Sutton Coldfield, Telford Shopping Centre, Birmingham and Coventry. It is so popular, there is even a dedicated Facebook page to track its whereabouts and share the latest news. 'Christmas 2023 Coca Cola Truck Tour' has 26.4k people following it.
