Bus Parade to Park to Celebrate Promotion
Sunday, 5th May 2024 10:01

Town have announced a bus parade through Ipswich on Bank Holiday Monday, celebrating yesterday’s return to the Premier League with fans encouraged to line the route before assembling in Christchurch Park.

The parade will start at midday on Sir Alf Ramsey Way before concluding in the park, where manager Kieran McKenna and the players will address the crowd.

After passing the stadium, the parade will continue along Sir Alf Ramsey Way, Portman Road, Handford Road and then into Civic Drive before turning into Crown Street and heading along Soane Street and up Bolton Lane.

It will then move into Westerfield Road, arriving in the park at around 1pm.

McKenna and the squad will then address the crowd from a stage, as they did at a similar event to celebrate promotion from League One last season, before an anticipated departure by 1.45pm.

That could be another great day, brilliant being promoted on a bank holiday weekend with more time to celebrate this amazing achievement. I predict a hangover COYB.

Being in Cyprus I'm hoping there'll be some sort of online live coverage.

Should be a good day. Would have thought theyd have done it earlier tho, like last season, with speedway at foxhall in the afternoon.

Council have a job on their hands first to clean up the town. A one off, but still a bit apocalyptic.
Might want to mute sound if sensitive to colourful language, but understandable.

Council offered to clean up the mess anyway. Norwich fans calling us "binners" might have a point with those responsible. .

Detailed plans have been in place for a long time - that includes cleaning up Town, that video was obviously taken very early as the council did a very good job tidying up. I'm glad I can still participate just a little at the start of the parade due to travel being moved to Monday due to industrial action on the trains the next day.
