Bizarrely, some people in Liverpool in the UK have been trying to get it banned from their town.

The city’s Liberal Democrat party believe the Coca-Cola event should not take place because Liverpool "is in the grip of an obesity epidemic".

Councillor Richard Kemp is the person leading the campaign to have it banned.

He said: "I believe that the visit by Coca-Cola should not take place. You only have to look around you to see that Liverpool is in the grip of an obesity epidemic - 30 percent of our 11 years olds are obese with about 5 percent being clinically obese.
