So the crowd came in their thousands to watch the torch as it passed through Burnley, waited for it to have its lunch, to then continue its journey! Was a fantastic atmosphere and i honestly didnt think so many people would turn up to see it! There were cheerleaders, bands, The Blaze Boom Bike Band, police, the advertising vans and of course the vehicles which had the torch bearers in and other important people haha. There was music throughout and a real buzz enticing the audience!
It was definitely a once in a lifetime event and Burnley were incredibly lucky to have it passing through the town. It will be remembered for years - and so it should.
