HOLIDAYS are definitely coming as Coca-Cola revealed details of its Christmas Truck Tour, which includes another stop in Limerick.

The iconic truck returns for another tour to spread a little holiday magic across Ireland with new and exciting additions at each stop.

Now in its eighth year, Coca-Cola’s Christmas Truck Tour has delighted thousands of visitors across the country with many more visitors expected to experience the magic in 2018.

Starting off in Galway on November 30, the truck will call to Limerick’s Parkway Shopping Centre as one of 10 stops in towns and cities before reaching Dublin on December 16. The Limerick visit will take place on Friday, December 7.

Each Truck Tour stop will feature a glittering winter wonderland setting nestled amongst a festival of lights. This year all visitors will also be able to purchase exclusive Coca-Cola merchandise at each stop, with all proceeds from the sale of merchandise to be donated to St Vincent De Paul.

This year, as well as celebrating the magic that the Coca-Cola Truck Tour brings to Christmas, each stop will encourage consumers to recycle their cans.

And to mark the start of Christmas, and a regular feature of the festive TV schedule, the famous Holidays Are Coming advert will also return to Irish screens once again.

“Christmas is all about sharing festive goodwill with friends and loved ones,” said Petre Sandru, Country Manager of Coca-Cola Ireland.

“We can’t wait to start spreading holiday cheer across the island of Ireland with the return of our iconic red truck. We’re excited to announce lots of new additions at each stop, with the tour bringing a sprinkling of festive magic to our customers and also reinforcing an important message by encouraging more people to recycle on the go.”
