Olympic Torch – Niagara Falls Dec. 20th

torchThe sacred Olympic Flame is lit in an ancient ritual in Olympia, Greece, site of the first Olympic Games. After a short run through Greece, the Olympic Flame arrives in Athens, where it is handed over to a representative from the Host Country.

From there, the Olympic Flame will make a trans-Atlantic flight and arrive in October 30th in Victoria BC, signaling the start of the longest Olympic Torch Relay to take place in a single country. It will make its 106 day journey across Canada, stopping at many towns and cities making it possible for 90% of Canadians to see it.

The torch is due to arrive in Niagara Falls the evening of December 20th, 2009.
