Walking past the Vancouver Art Gallery in the rain.
Since December, Robson Square has been transformed into a free skating rink open to the public. On opening ceremonies night, a live band was playing.
The light show at Robson Square
This grove of "lantern trees" on Granville is just one of the many sculptures and pieces of public art on display.
A crowd gathered at Granville and Robson around midnight. I took this photo from the window of the Winners upstairs, and even though I was inside and two storeys up, I could still hear all the chants and cheers. The excitement was palpable. The Olympics are in town!!
