COCA-COLA Ireland is celebrating the start of the festive season by unveiling the 2018 Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour locations – and Ballina is on the list. The tour, which kicks off in Galway on November 30, will visit Ballina Military Barracks on Wednesday, December 12. This is the eighth year that the iconic Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour is spreading a little holiday magic across Ireland.

Each truck tour stop will feature a glittering winter wonderland setting nestled amongst a festival of lights. Visitors will be able to enjoy a can of Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Diet Coke or Coca-Cola Original Taste at each stop, enjoying exclusive photography opportunities and creating magical memories that will last a lifetime.

This year, all truck tour visitors will also be able to purchase exclusive Coca-Cola merchandise at each stop. All proceeds from the sale of merchandise will be donated to St. Vincent de Paul.

Over the past eight years, the hugely-popular truck tour has racked up serious mileage, travelling the length and breadth of Ireland and delighting families with the iconic ‘Holidays are Coming’ jingle. The famous TV advert featuring will be returning to Irish screens again this year.

As well as celebrating the magic that the Coca-Cola Truck Tour brings to Christmas, each truck tour stop will encourage consumers to recycle their cans, in line with Coca-Cola’s World Without Waste global commitment to collect and recycle a bottle or can for each one sold by the year 2030.

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