Checking Out The Action At LiveCity Vancouver 2010

LiveCity Vancouver is one of two live cities in the downtown core (the other is LiveCity Yaletown). The two live cities have a big open space with a huge screen so people can watch the Olympic games live – the place is completely packed during any of the Canadian hockey games. In addition to the live viewing space, LiveCity Vancouver houses the Manitoba Pavilion, the Canada Pavilion and a beer garden.

The Manitoba Pavilion has literally nothing in it, which is proper since the Province of Manitoba has literally nothing in it. The bigger Canada Pavilion is where all the action is. Inside, you can take photos with the Olympic torch and view interactive displays. The beer garden is wall to wall people during a hockey game.

All the pavilions will be shutting down this Sunday. On Monday, the city will try to return to normal after 17 days of games, partying and having the eyes of the world on it. Vancouver 2010 has been a total blast. If your city ever tries to make a bid for the Olympics, I recommend you back it 100 percent. You can worry about the bill afterward.
