This year’s SO Festival got off to a fiery start in Mablethorpe on Saturday evening as star attraction Flame Oz wowed the crowds.

It was the first time that Mablethorpe got the opportunity to open the festival, which is this year focusing on ‘the elements’ – earth, air, fire and water.

Fire was certainly the element highlight of the night with hundreds of residents and visitors alike turning out to see this amazing spectacle.

There was also circus performers on stage and artists taking to the streets to keep everyone entertained.

The SO Festival has also already visited Horncastle, Woodhall Spa, Louth and Alford.

It will also stop off at Alford, Spilsby and Skegness in the coming days.

The next major event to hit Mablethorpe will be the illumations switch on, taking place at the end of July.
