The Lantern Forest on the pedestrian-only section of Granville Street is another great evening photo-op. Itís a display of more than 2,000 lanterns created by children from Taiwan and Canada to celebrate the Lunar New Year and the Olympics.
Speaking of evening skylights, there's a way to contribute your part to the light shows that happen in the Vancouver night sky--even if you aren't in Vancouver! Vectorial Elevation is an interactive art installation with 20 robotic searchlights along the shores of English Bay. You can program your pattern and then watch it perform live.
I've also enjoyed the Victory Celebrations at BC Place, the location of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. At each eveningís Celebration, the medalists from the Cypress Mountain events and short-track speed skating receive their medals in front of 22,000 spectators at a massive party televised live and shown at all big screens around the city.
For the audience, the Celebrations have been a huge bargain at $22 to $50 per ticket. They are well-produced shows with a different Canadian province providing a pre-show, followed by the medal ceremonies and then a live concert to end the evening.
But now there are only a few more medal ceremonies left.
Tuija Seipell will be posting more Olympics Observations throughout the weekend so stay tuned!
