In blogging


On my way to work yesterday, in a sleepy state, walking towards Leicester Square and I bumped into the Coca Cola Santa truck, parked outside Capital Radio, which is famously on television around christmas.

I thought this truck only existed in the adverts and I never dreamt of seeing it in the street. So as I do when I see things I want to share I got my iphone out of my pocket and started snapping away. I was however slightly disappointed that the christmas lights weren't turn on.

There was a film crew set up across the road from it, but they didn't seem to be doing anything and didn't complain when I started taking photos. 

Having uploaded my image to Instagram with the hastag Holidays are coming, I thought about having a look on good old google to find out what the Coke truck actually does and I was suprised to find out that it tours the country from 23rd November to 23rd December. 

I went onto their website and discovered lots of event across the country where you can have your photo with the Coca Cola truck and enjoy festive magic. 

The events that are being held can be found here, you just need to put your town in or postcode and the map will point you in the right direction. I am disappointed that there are only 2 stops in   Wales, which are in the South Cardiff and Newport. People in Wrexham will have to travel to Chester to see this spectacular event. 

The Route starts in Inverness and ends in Dartford at Bluewater shopping center. It seems like there are 2 trucks travelling the country.

Have a look to see if the Coca Cola truck is stopping in a town near you.
