Olympics Opening Ceremony

The TW Torch will arrive at 11:15 – don’t miss it! Snack crepes (to make us feel like we’re in Paris,) water, and coffee will be served. The Opening Ceremony will be broadcast on the big screen starting at 11:30.  The 2024 Games’ opening ceremony promises to become one of “the most memorable moments in Olympic history,” according to the 2024 Games’ website. What sets the upcoming spectacle apart from those of the past is that it will not take place in a stadium. Instead, the parade of athletes will be held on the Seine, with boats for each national delegation, equipped with cameras to allow television and online viewers to see the athletes up close. The parade will be followed by official speeches. The Olympic flag will then be raised to the Olympic Anthem before athletes, coaches, and judges participate in the Olympic Oath. Then the final runner of the Torch enters the stadium and lights the cauldron with the Olympic flame. After the torch ceremony, the opening ceremony concludes with the Olympic Artists Program. We’ll keep the show running for the whole thing but you can come and go as you please since past Opening Ceremonies have lasted 4 hours!
