Leaving Greece on April 16, 2024, the Olympic flame passes through Hérault this Monday, May 13. The towns of Sète, Balaruc-les-Bains, Juvignac and Montpellier host the sacred fire. Merchants are ready to receive many customers.

In the town of Balaruc-les-Bains, the day promises to be sporty, while waiting for the arrival of the flame at 1:20 p.m. Several activities will allow the youngest to wait, explains the mayor of Balaruc-les-Bains, Gérard Canovas: “all along the pond from the nautical base, there will be sports workshops for young people. For the passage of the flame, the guests will be grouped together on the part of the beach which will border the route. The population will be able to go a little further towards the nautical base to see the flame and watch the departure of the boat. The torch will then cross the Thau pond.

In Juvignac, the merchants of Place du Soleil organized themselves before the event. In the tobacco brasserie de l’Étoile, the terrace can accommodate people. Moreover, Samir, the waiter, assures us that the stocks have been adapted: “we were able to organize ourselves in terms of drinks, in terms of staff, we are ready to welcome many customers and we are impatiently awaiting the Olympic flame“.

700 schoolchildren from Juvignac will participate in the Olympics on the sidelines of the passage of the flame which must take place from 3:25 p.m. on the Place du Soleil. The manager of the Gouda bakery has already planned to make more sandwiches: “I already have 100 menus, sandwiches, drinks and desserts, ordered by the town hall, then for the rest, I don’t know if there will be people, it’s difficult to predict” says the baker.

From Place du Soleil to Rue de la Voie-Lactée, barriers will be installed. Residents will be able to sit behind to watch the parade.

The mayor of Juvignac expects people: “the shops are open, we can imagine that they can take advantage of this day. Then the flame is a symbol, it is a point of gathering of people around sport in an international context where we see exactly the opposite“.
