Tomorrow, along with being Hallowe'en -- be careful driving, as there are ghost and goblins out there, trick and treating! -- it's also the day that the Olympic Torch comes to Salt Spring.

Festivities take place in Centennial Park, from 1 p.m., with musical entertainment at 2 p.m. Free pizza, hot chocolate, juice, plus Free Draws for great prizes from Salt Spring merchants, plus face painting, tatoos, giveaways.

At 3:20 the Torch arrives by floatplane, from Lake Cowichan, and will make the rounds of downtown Ganges, before being driven to the Vesuvius Ferry, and back onto Vancouver Island.

This is a stellar event that is a part of all B.C., even though the venue is in Whistler and Vancouver, for the actual Olympic events.

We all live in such a beautiful part of the world, whether on a Gulf Island or on Vancouver Island, or on the Sunshine Coast. Same with Victoria and Vancouver -- it's the "coastal grid", and it's full of beauty!

This is a celebration, that the Winter Olympics will take place in B.C.

Let's turn out, and support those who are carrying the Torch for our area.

See you there!

Caring expertise...knowledge for you!

The Torch arrived in Victoria, from Athens, Greece (Victoria is the B.C.'s capital city), and is touring small communities across all of Canada, before returning to Whistler, for the Winter Olympics.   An exciting time!
