If anyone would like to meet up with me, I will be heading down to the Olympic Torch Relay as it passes through North Vancouver.

WinterFest will kick off on February 10th, 2010 when the Olympic Torch passes through the Waterfront Plaza at Lonsdale Quay Market.

On Day 104 of its 106-day journey through Canadian communities, the Olympic Torch Relay will arrive in the City of North Vancouver. To celebrate the exciting arrival of the Olympic Flame, the City and Lonsdale Quay Market are co-hosting a special event at Waterfront Plaza of Lonsdale Quay market from 8am to 10am.

The 2010 Torch Relay celebration features:

* A countdown to the Olympic Flame's arrival
* The arrival and hand-off of the Olympic Flame
* A First Nations drum circle and dance performance
* Live main stage music by singer/songwriter Vince Vaccaro
* A special Fire Twirlers performance
* Face painting
* Balloons and sparklers
* Maple leaf tattoos
* Canadian flags and Spirit Bear Bell giveaways
* Food and refreshments

Join Mayor Darrell Mussatto and other guests for an exciting, historic celebration! Come and show your support for our aspiring Canadian athletes by wearing red as part of the Paint the Town Red campaign.

You can meet me at Bean Around the World between 8 and 815, then we shall find a place to watch the festivities.

Do not forget to wear Red.
