The City of Vancouver decided to throw a street party to celebrate the one year anniversary of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games. And though the rain came down pouring, there was still entertainment all around. From ice skating, to street hockey and live music, the rainy weather soon began to disappear in the afternoon, with the relighting of the Olympic Cauldron.
There was no giant fence keeping the crowds at a distance, which was the best decision the city made, giving everyone an up close opportunity to enjoy it. (That thing gets warm up close!) It was great seeing all the people come out to enjoy the anniversary, and reminisce about the Olympics of 2010, which helped put Vancouver on the map, and helped push the city to mature.
Here are some pics and timelapse vids I took while out and about during the celebration event.
