Olympic Fever

Olympic fever has hit Nova Scotia as the Olympic Torch makes its way across the province.  Last night, it stopped here in Truro and there was a HUGE celebration in Victoria Park.  The festivities started at 5:30, but we didn’t get there until closer to six.  Already, there were a few thousand people there.  The event was so well planned & executed.  The entertainment was awesome – athletes, drummers, musicians, choirs, speakers…

You can find the story from the local newspaper here:  http://www.trurodaily.com//index.cfm?sid=303955&sc=68

We had a full house here at the B&B and our guests came and joined us to take in the activities!  I managed to take a few photos of the excitement:
