Holidays are coming: Coca-Cola Christmas truck tour returns for 2023

The Coca Cola truck will be making two stops in Scotland this festive season.

Coca-Cola’s iconic “Holidays are coming” truck is returning over the festive season as the drinks giant confirmed it was aiming to “to make it as magical and merry as possible”.

The festivities will take place at 17 consumer stops nationwide, kicking off in Glasgow on Friday, November 24, stopping at Silverburn Shopping Centre, before heading to the Fort Kinnaird Shopping Centre in Edinburgh on Saturday, November 25.

As part of this year’s tour Coca-Cola has partnered with Neighbourly, a giving platform that provides support to communities across the UK.

Visitors can donate online or use the QR code at the Truck Tour. In Glasgow, Coca-Cola will be supporting Refuweegee.

Guests will be welcomed by a walk-in, snow-filled bauble, inviting families to step into a winter wonderland to snap a holiday photo.

There will also be a host of games, decorations and prizes to be had.

Families can finish off the tour by posing in front of the iconic Coca-Cola truck.

Throughout the tour, visitors will be able to listen to the Coca-Cola Christmas choir as they perform a set
of carols.

Florence Wheatley, brand manager at Coca-Cola Company for Great Britain, said: “Coca-Cola has been spreading Christmas cheer for decades and, this year, we’ve added even more exciting elements to make it as magical and merry as possible.
