Coca Cola have announced the return of its iconic Coca-Cola Christmas Truck Tour, stopping off at new locations, much to the delight of eagerly awaiting fans. However there’s set to be disappointment for many Dorset locals as neither Bournemouth or Poole have made the list.
The tour is set to start on Friday 15th November and is due to visit 19 stops nationwide before making its final stop in London on Sunday 15th December.
The truck has proven to be a popular attraction in Bournemouth and Poole over the past few years with hundreds queuing to get a photo with the famous truck and enjoy their snowy winter wonderland setting.
Sadly this year fans will need to travel further afield if they wish to see the truck which has become somewhat synonymous with Christmas.
