Holidays are coming! You’ve seen the Coca-Cola truck on the TV adverts and now fans have seen it come to Huddersfield.

The unmistakable red truck rolled into the town on Saturday to spread its festive fizz to gathered crowds.

And everyone seemed to be enjoying the attraction from midday until well into the evening at St George’s Square.

Fans sipped mini-cans of free Coke and Diet Coke and enjoyed Christmas tunes from a choir.

Jade Pickering, 27, of Holmfirth said: “We’ve come down with the kids as it’s just something nice to do as a family. We’re queuing up to have our photo taken. It will be a nice keepsake for when they are older. I think I was about nine, the same age as my eldest daughter is now, when I saw the Coca-cola advert on TV for the first time.

 

“It just makes you feel a bit more Christmassy.”

The truck was on its 27th stop as part of a whistle stop tour of the country taking in 45 towns and cities.

Also lining up to get a festive photo was Jade Whitbread, 22, of Batley.

She said: “I’ve brought my seven-month-old son Ethan with me to have our photo taken.

“I wanted to do it last year but missed it it’s good to get here.”

Jo Dye, 32, of Halifax had organised a group of 15 friends and their children to enjoy the event.

Jo said: “We came last year and enjoyed it and made a day of it Christmas shopping. We’ve all got Christmas jumpers on and its just nice to set time aside to do something altogether this time of year.”

The soft drinks giant has made the red truck famous since its adverts launched in 1995 showing a convoy of dazzling trucks and Santa swigging Coca-Cola from the iconic glass bottles.
