The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck is rolling back into Tysons for its typically annual spring visit.

The pop-up from toy company Sanrio will park at Tysons Corner Center’s Events Plaza from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday (March 25), just over a year after its last appearance.

New items in tow include a hoodie and a plush coffee cup carrying the truck’s titular, bow-wearing cat. The truck will also bring back some collectibles and snacks, including:

  • Hello Kitty Cafe coin bank
  • Glass mug with sprinkle handle
  • Hello Kitty Cafe lunchbox
  • Hello Kitty Cafe lavender T-shirt
  • Hello Kitty Cafe canvas tote
  • Hello Kitty Cafe rainbow thermos
  • Hand-decorated cookie sets
  • Enamel pin sets
  • Madeleine cookie sets
  • Hello Kitty Cafe plush toys
  • Giant Hello Kitty Cafe chef cookies

The truck doesn’t accept cash payments, only credit or debit cards, according to a news release.

For those who miss the Tysons stop, the truck will stick around the D.C. area for a two-day sojourn at the National Cherry Blossom Festival on April 15-16
