My day at the Bedford River Festival 2012

At the weekend, I went to the Bedford River Festival, which happens every two years. First I saw the Roman Soldiers who were showing us all what they might have done in battle. Then I saw the carnival parade – it was very fun because there were loads of people dressed up and I saw a cat van, people on trucks, a carnival queen and lots more. People came to me giving out sweets! It was very fun.

I saw people racing on the river on dragon boats. They were very, very fast. I don’t think I could run as fast as them.

After all of that, we saw loads of stalls and I made a minibeast home at one of the stalls. It was very hard but fun. I have hung it in the garden and I hope that lots of minibeasts will visit my minibeast home. I also had my face painted as a scary vampire.

I went to the St John Ambulance place and I gave a dummy a heart massage. My sister blew into its mouth and made its chest pop up to make it come back to life!

I very enjoyed going on all the rides like the bumper boats. I like River Festival a lot because I win prizes too and I got to share some churros with my family. It’s a very big shame that it happens only once every two years!

The Olympic Torch Relay in Bedford

When I got up this morning I felt happy because I was going to Bedford to see the Olympic Torch Relay. I put on an Olympics t-shirt and some sticky glittery tattoos. I am going to keep my tattoos on for lunch! Some of them are on my face.

The weather was disgusting on the way to Bedford, it was chucking it down with rain. We had to walk all the way from the car park in the rain to the torch relay. It took ages for the torch to arrive but while we were waiting I saw some funny things like a man running along with a fake torch and a rubbish truck driving along the road! The police came along and high-fived me and had a photo with me which you can see in the gallery on this blog post.

Before the torch man came along, lots of cars and trucks and motorbikes were in front of it. On three of the trucks there were people dancing and singing and that made me feel a bit nervous and excited because I knew the Olympic torch was very close. A torch relay is a race that you can join in and you have your very own torch to keep but you run with it and pass the flame to another person.

When I finally saw the Olympic torch I was very excited and I saw lots of people running with the person carrying the Olympic torch. You can see it yourself on this exciting video that my Dad took:

Thank you for reading this blog post. Please have a look at the pictures.
