Olympic Torch Relay & Community Celebration

On Jan. 3, 2010, Thunder Bay showed its Olympic Spirit as the City welcomed the Olympic Flame for Day 66 of the cross-country Relay toward the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games. An estimated 20,000 residents braved freezing temperatures to line the route and show support for our local torchbearers. Energy was high inside the Community Auditorium as Thunder Bay's own Olympic Gold Medalist Katie Weatherston lit Thunder Bay's Olympic Cauldron at the Community Celebration. Following are highlights from the Relay and Community Celebration.
