The Coca Cola Truck comes to the Cornhill Ipswich

The Coca Cola Truck comes to the Cornhill Ipswich

Archant

HORDES of excitable families converged on the Cornhill declaring the holidays are coming as the Coca-Cola truck pulled up.

The Coca-Cola Christmas truck, which has become a classic Christmas Icon over the years, stopped off in Ipswich to spread a little festive cheer.

Crowds lined up as streams of people arrived in town to get their picture taken with the bright red truck.

Families enjoying a drink or two while listening to the Coca-Cola brass band play an array of Yuletide tunes.

And the fun didn’t stop there, as children watched on in awe as the town was covered in a light blanket of snow too complete the festive scene.

  • It's just a big truck with an advert on it, thousands of those travel on the A14 every day, personally I don't see what's so special about it to queue for a photo with it?

  • I assume the company had to obtain permission from IBC to park on the Cornhill; if so, then shame on you. This is commercial exploitation of children and, of course, their parents who will be forking out for a drink that I think most would not dub a 'health drink'. And I am sure there are more positive Christmas events taking place in Ipswich (especially through charities) which this paper could be promoting.
