Moving Tides - Weymouth’s closing celebration

Hundreds of schoolchildren in extraordinary Jurassic-inspired costumes created a pulsating carnival of colour, dance, noise and excitement for Weymouth and Portland’s closing Olympic and Paralympic celebration - the Moving Tides procession.
The children, from Weymouth, Portland and Dorchester were transformed into iridescent sea creatures as they danced their way along the esplanade, accompanied by junk bands and huge carnival dinosaurs.
Moving Tides was originally scheduled for the day the Olympic torch arrived in Weymouth - but after extreme weather forced postponement, it was rescheduled - in an inspired move by organisers - to the final day of London 2012, September 9th.
