I had managed to get tickets for the finale of Sparks Will Fly which is an event that has been taking place all over Essex in Celebration of the Olympics.
It was a fantastic evening filled with all sorts of entertainment.
& Marching Bands
We didn't actually stay for the finale itself. If I'm honest we had got ourselves into position, after seeing the red devils we were looking forward to what was to come, only as soon as it started we left along with a lot of other people. A rather disappointing end to a great evening.
A fantastic display. It was amazing how they managed to stay so close together.
Saturday was then an early start to see the torch leaving Chelmsford for it's journey to Harlow. It was setting off at 7am. We hadn't thought many people would be up that early to see it but how wrong we were. It was a great turn out and the streets were lined ready to see the torch.
It was so lovely to see everyone getting involved, it's just a shame really it doesn't happen more often.
After the sponsors had warmed up the crowds the torch arrived.
Has it passed through your hometown yet or is it still to come?
