Barbie is celebrating her 60th birthday in style by trading her pink convertible in for a retro van and hitting the road on a three-year tour of the country, and San Antonio on February 8th is one of her stops. If you’re a Barbie fan and you’re looking for an affordable, entertaining, and a little unconventional thing to do this weekend, spending some time at the Barbie truck should be on your agenda.
Where is Barbie Going?
In November of 2019, Mattel Inc, the company that makes Barbie decided to recruit fans, celebrities, and high-profile social media influencers to help publicize Barbie’s most adventurous activity yet. The Barbie Truck’s first stop was at the Grove in Los Angeles and the event was a huge success.
Attendees of all ages stopped by the party to see Barbie and her truck, check out some awesome merchandise, and enjoy the party. Because of this, Barbie’s renegade road trip has been a big success and we don’t expect anything less at the San Antonio stop.
You can find the Barbie Truck this Saturday at The Shops at La Cantera, 15900 La Cantera Parkway, San Antonio, TX 78256 on February 8th, 2020 from 10 am – 7 pm.
