The Olympic Flame came through Stouffville this morning. What an amazing event! A once in a life time experience that will be remembered forever.

Awesome photo of the Olympic flame and the excited onlookers! Could you send the torch to Eagan so I could take a photo for my blog, too?!

Great photo Ken. I took pics too, some are on my blog today.
Quite an impressive turnout of Olympic supporters, wasn't it? But of course, there are always idiots who see a crowd of 1000 people in the middle of Main St and try and drive right through them!!!!!! I couldn't believe my eyes when two cars drove past me into the crowd.

The Olympic flame through Stouffville??? Wow! No offense but it was such a small place when I was there. But great thing for Stouffville! Good shot too. This should put the town on the map.

OK let me guess, you're the guy with glasses and a big camera on the right edge of the picture of the horse drawn carriage.... right?

Shammickite said...

sorry, I meant LEFT edge.

Oh no! Anything but the Emmerson mask!!!
I'm hoping to see the flame again on the 29th in Alliston w/ my grandson.

Good shot. I remember the excitement of the Olympic flame in Sydney in 2000.

I'm a bit late with my greetings. I trust you had a wonderful Christmas and wish you all the best for the New Year.
