Canmore Olympic Parade and Presentation

Shona and Chandra wave as the Parade is about to get going. They are surrounded by cross country sking Olympians.
80 truck loads of snow were deposited in the main street and track set. Here the Olympic parade dissappears around the corner. Shona said that the cheering was deafening as they walked between the crowds.

Here the Olympians and future Olympians listen to great moving speeches from the Mayor, MLA and Thomas Grandi 4 time olympian. He told them the great Canmore Community would love them no matter what happens in Vancouver. Just as well as his wife is Sara Renner who won the bronze medal at the World Cup on saturday.

Holding up all the great posters the school kids did to cheer on the Olympic Atheletes. It was a day we felt so proud and amazed with our daughter and to be part of such a great great small town. And we sent them to Vancouver with GO CANADA GO ringing in their ears.
