Watch the 2010 Winter Games closing ceremony in the village

The 2010 Olympic Winter Games Closing Ceremony is just around the corner and Whistler has a lot to celebrate.

Enjoy Whistler’s exuberant and abundant Olympic spirit by heading to the Whistler Public Library on Sunday (Feb 28) to celebrate the Closing Ceremony with fellow community members at the Whistler Canada Olympic House.

The event will be shown on big screen TVs throughout the facility and festivities include a Whistler-style après scene. This event is open to the community. and runs from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Whistler Canada Olympic House. Space is limited so arrive early.

The Closing Ceremony will also be broadcast on Whistler Live! screens throughout the Village starting at 4:30 p.m. You can check out the action in Town Plaza, Village Common, Village Square and Skiers Plaza.

Although the details are secret, the Closing Ceremony promises to be a party in true Whistler style.

The final act of any Olympic Games is traditionally a more informal gathering than the opening ceremony and Furlong told reporters at a recent media briefing: “I think you’ll find that the closing is a very Canadian, fun, happy show.

“You can expect that the Closing Ceremony will be a warm, happy, fun-filled goodbye,” he said. “It will be a Canadian goodbye, in which we might poke a bit of fun at ourselves.”

The Ceremony will also include a segment highlighting Sochi, Russia, which will host the next Winter Olympic Games in 2014. Rehearsals resumed the night after the Opening Ceremony, and have continued at all hours, veiled in secrecy.
