BROADCAST TRANSCRIPT:

“Living the dream”– that’s the motto the Barbie Truck Tour brings on their visit to Bakersfield.

Ever since the Barbie movie aired in theaters back in 2023, bringing in over $1.4 billion around the world, fans show their colors whenever the opportunity arises.

“We added a lot of pink into our wardrobes after that movie,” said Silvia Lopez, a Bakersfield local and Barbie enthusiast.

The movie, encouraging imagination and female empowerment, continues to bring people together with their passion for the childhood toy.

“I love it, I love girly fun things,” said Sonia Lemus, another Bakersfield local and lover of all things pink.

Cruising into Bakersfield, the Barbie Truck Tour brings a whole lot of pink to the Valley Plaza Mall.

Lemus and Lopez said they bought the Barbie glass mug, a pouch set, and a pink pet bowl.

While it's only a one-day stop, the community cherishes the pop-up.

“Honestly, we don’t get a lot of things here, so I’m just glad we get these cute little things every once in a while,” Lemus said.

While the Barbie Truck Tour is back on the road, their next stop is in Fresno on March 2, 2024.
