I got to take a picture with the torch too! Those torch bearers are like instant-celebs! I should have applied to be a torch bearer in hindsight- it would’ve been fun to wear that snazzy outfit.
There was a huge crowd and I couldn’t help but get swept up in the excitement. There was drumming, everyone was smiling, and cheering.. it was great! It made me feel like such a proud Canadian- not just wearing that Canadian flag on my backpack when I travel lol! Seeing this level of patriotism for Canada is so great- I get kind of teary-eyed thinking about it!
Here are some pictures:
