Thousands of truck fans flocked to the East of England Showground for Truckfest 2017 on Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday.

The largest event of its kind in the UK brought more trucks, more celebrities and more entertainment than ever before.

Running for over 35 years across the UK, Truckfest delivers fun for all the family.

At the Mercedes-Benz Trucks stand, guests were treated to live music from oompah band The Bavarian Stompers, and kids enjoyed entertainment from The Great Gappo and face-painting amongst other activities.

In addition to a wide range of fantastic Mercedes-Benz Trucks, the impressive RoadStars trailer was in attendance, allowing visitors to sign up to RoadStars, the online community from Mercedes-Benz, and receive a RoadStars gift bag.

The winner of our RoadStars competition, Allan Holt, was on site with his stunning Pollock Scotrans Actros. Joining Allan on the stand were runners-up Dominic and Tracy Newby and son Edward who were their classic Mercedes-Benz truck.
