Day 12, Chester to Stoke. In Wrexham Maddie Hough, six, and her dad, Jim were among those waiting outside the town's Guildhall.
Not everyone turned up at Wrexham to cheer the torch relay's arrival. Aled Cottle, 36, from Denbighshire, and "Budgie" Burgess, 45, from Flintshire, said they were staging a peaceful protest because they did not think Wales was benefiting from the Olympics.
Amid the cheering crowd, the flame passed to Ronald Price, 82.
The party atmosphere was boosted with live music from a band and a choral performance by pupils from Ysgol Morgan Llwyd in Wrexham.
Muhammad "Mo" Ullah, 12, has a condition that will limit his mobility and confine him permanently to a wheelchair. He carried the flame through Acrefair.
The next stage of the relay saw the torch arrive at Pontcysyllte Aqueduct on the Llangollen Canal, where some 3,000 people cheered as it crossed the Unesco World Heritage Centre site

Hayley Lynch, 24, was the last torchbearer to carry the flame in Wales as it left Welshpool. She was due to give birth three days ago but was keen to carry out her torchbearing duties although she walked, rather than ran her leg.
The residents of Much Wenlock turned out in force to welcome the flame at lunchtime. Said to be the birthplace of the modern Olympics, the Shropshire town's main streets were full as Dimitrios Eforakopoulos carried his torch.
Afghanistan war veteran Ricky Furgusson carried the Olympic flame through Broseley to huge cheers from the crowds, which included members of the 4th battalion, the Rifles. The 26-year-old, from Telford, lost both his legs, his left eye and fingers from both hands when he was injured on active service.
Torchbearer number 100 on the day was Adele Bisbey, who carried the torch in Haughton. She has raised more than £20,000 for charity and has also taken part in showjumping events and the Great North Run.
The day was completed when 1988 Olympic hockey gold medallist Imran Sherwani lit the cauldron at the evening celebration in Hanley Park. Sherwani scored twice for Great Britain in their 3-1 victory over Germany in the final in Seoul.
