Niagara Photography - The Olympic Flame - Welland

The Olympic Flame came to town on Monday to both Welland and Fonthill, in the form of the cross Canada Olympic Torch Relay. I checked out both of these local to me runs. The images below are from the Welland run. Images from Fonthill are to come in a later post.

I was quite surprised as to the number of people who came out to each event. It was one of those proud to be Canadian moments.

The runner for the leg of the relay that I had staked out in Welland was Sabrina Parrotta. She had the distinction of carrying it into the main event area where the flame made a stop for approximately a half hour.

I encourage you to click on the first image (my favourite of them) to view it larger.
