A FORTNIGHT of fun and games has come to an end.

The 23rd Baldock Festival, which has kept residents partying for the last two weeks with a range of events, concluded on Sunday evening with the final of Who Wants to be (not quite) a Millionaire?

Many of the events during the festival were sold out and visitors enjoyed a range of events.

A fire station open day at the town's Weston Way fire station gave visitors the chance to look around and meet the crew. There was also a road traffic accident demonstration as well as safety advice given throughout the day.
