Holidays are coming...and the dates for the return of the world famous Coca Cola truck’s return to Doncaster can now be revealed.
The lorry, which for many signals the start of Christmas, will roll back into town on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 December.
And thousands of people of all ages are expected to flock to Lakeside Village as the illuminated lorry comes to town as part of a massive UK wide tour.
The truck visited the centre last year and has also visited Doncaster Market on a previous UK tour.
A Coca-Cola spokesman said: “Holidays are coming!
“The iconic Coca-Cola Christmas truck tour is back for 2018, spreading holiday magic across UK. The countdown to Christmas has now officially started!
“We’re giddy with holiday joy and thrilled to announce the return of the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour.”
Now in its eighth year, the Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour has travelled more than 737,000 miles.
In that time, thousands of Christmas fans have basked in its 8,772 twinkling fairy lights and enjoyed the magical ‘Holidays are Coming’ jingle, which marks the official start of Christmas for many people.
The 2018 tour will kick off in Glasgow on the 9 November and visit 24 locations nationwide, before making its final stop in London on 16 December.
Visit the truck in a glittering winter wonderland setting and enjoy a free 150ml can of Coca-Cola zero sugar, Diet Coke or Coca-Cola Original Taste.
Visitors are urged to put their empty can in one of Coca Cola’s recycling bins to help the firm with its global World Without Waste pledge – to collect and recycle a bottle or can for each one sold by the year 2030.
