Any special events planned during the games? B)

Vancouver's annual Lunar New Year Parade and Festival, of course! It's the first weekend of the games with the big parade on Sunday the 14th. Celebrate Valentine's with the Tiger. Rawr!

There are even a couple commemorative lunar new year pins for sale too.

Definitely a major attraction for visitors, it's one of the biggest Chinese cultural celebrations outside of China in the world, probably only second to San Francisco but Vancouver's is definitely growing. Everybody has to go at least once in your life or if you're like me, go every year. B)

Damnit...why couldn't the rain come BEFORE the Games start. I'd gladly switch these past few days with Friday onwards.
