Red Sox Holiday Road Trip Presented by Coca-Cola
The week-long Red Sox Holiday Fest begins with a three-day, six-state Red Sox Holiday Road Trip Presented by Coca-Cola. Red Sox players and staff will travel in two groups, making planned community visits in the morning hours as part of the “100 Acts of Kindness” initiative, before spontaneous drop-ins each afternoon.
In addition to recognizing various community groups, the Road Trip will also visit office buildings, stores, restaurants, and other locations. Citizens of Red Sox Nation can request visits by the Road Trip via Twitter or Facebook. The Road Trip will make stops based in part on tweets sent to @redsox that include the hashtags #SoxRoadTrip1 (for the Maine/New Hampshire/Rhode Island group) or #SoxRoadTrip2 (for the Vermont/Connecticut/Massachusetts group), as well as comments left on Road Trip posts on facebook.com/redsox.
