The Olympic torch came through our little village on Thursday. It was a big party - with bands and balloons and lots of excitement. I am posting a few of the pictures I took.
You can see the stage set up here with the 2010.
Stilt walkers and the Olympic mascot - I have no idea which mascot this one is - there are three of them. We are all gathered waiting for the torch runner.
Here she comes!
I think most of the village was out for the event.
There were some young acrobats from the village preforming on the "silks" They were great to watch.
And here are a couple of pictures of Jim and I holding the touch. Ah -- we look pretty goofy but it will be something to put on the digital photo frame!! LOL
Jim is wearing his Team Canada jersey he got from Santa this Christmas.
One of the quilters from my Friday stitch group got to carry the torch earlier in the day in Gibsons - so this is her torch. It was a pretty exciting day. The torch will be winding it's way along the southwest part of B.C and then next Friday will end up at the opening ceremonies in B.C Place Stadium.
