It’s gonna be lit.

To mark the closing of the Paralympics in PyeongChang, the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Cauldron will light up once again this weekend.

The flame will be re-lit for two hours on Saturday, between 5 and 7 pm – ahead of the Closing Ceremony in Korea, which takes place at 4 am Sunday morning.

The 10-metre tall cauldron contains five separate burners and was re-lit before the opening of the 2018 Olympic Games in PyeongChang last month.

The public is invited to attend the event, sing O Canada, and wear red and white to honour our Canadian athletes.

“The lighting of the Cauldron is always a special occasion and to be able to celebrate our inspiring Olympians and Paralympians will be an incredibly engaging and fun experience,” said Olympic race walker Evan Dunfee. “The Cauldron is a symbol of unity and I’m excited to take part in an evening to bring our community together.”
