This is it, one of the biggest days ever in the history of Vancouver is upon us as the 2010 Olympic Winter Games kick off this evening. With the mysterious opening ceremony tonight at BC Place (including performances and the lighting of the torch) everyone wants to make sure they can catch the action.
Here are a few options for catching the opening ceremony:
Live television coverage starts at 4:00pm on CTV and it will also be streamed online on the CTV Olympics site.
As the official radio station of the Games, News1130 will stream live audio from tonight’s ceremony on air and on their website starting at 6:00pm.
On the big screens at LiveCity Yaletown they’ll be playing the opening ceremony from all Winter Games since Calgary 1988. At 5:30pm they’ll have a pre-show for Vancouver before the main event begins at 6:00pm. The first 1,000 people through the gates will get a pair of red mittens.
Whether you’re at home, with friends, or at a public site, I have a feeling the entire Province, nation and maybe a big chunk of the world will have their eyes, hearts, and spirits focused on Vancouver tonight.
