Coca-Cola’s Christmas Truck Tour Heading for Scotland
November 3, 2015
The famous Coca-Cola Christmas truck will be heading to various parts of Scotland in the coming weeks and looking to spread some free-of-charge festive cheer around the country.
Stop-off points for the famously sparkly and delight-inducing vehicle will be Glasgow and Edinburgh, as well as Inverness, Perth and Fraserburgh in Aberdeenshire.
The iconic red truck is sure to put a smile on the faces of thousands of Christmas shoppers around the country, with young children always particularly thrilled to see it wheeling into view.
There will be photo opportunities and a chance for adults and children alike to grab themselves a great selfie with the famous HGV.
As well as all that, there will be seasonal music in the air and no doubt an infectious Christmas spirit abounding whatever the weather.
The Coca-Cola truck will be stopping for eight-hour stretches from noon each day at its five earmarked locations across Scotland towards the end of November, starting with Inverness and the retail park on Eastfield Way on November 20th.
Next up will be Fraserburgh and Saltoun Square on November 21st, followed the very next day by a trip to Perth and King Edward Street near the St John’s shopping centre.
Then the festivities will move on to what is sure to be one of Scotland’s busiest locations in the coming weeks as the truck rolls into Edinburgh on November 23rd and the Asda supercentre in Brunstane.
Then there is in one final Scotland stop off in Glasgow at the Silverburn Centre on Barrhead Road on November 24th.
If you have children – or even if you don’t – a trip to the Coca-Cola Christmas truck is sure to provide plenty of excitement with the big red vehicle having become so closely associated with Father Christmas and festive fun over the past few decades.
Indeed, the truck has become something of a Christmas icon in many different parts of the world since its first appearance in Coca-Cola’s TV adverts in 1995 and it is now a fixture at major retail locations throughout the UK as Brits set about their Christmas shopping in earnest.
