Finally, the Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010 will be coming to an end. The past few days have been a mixture of events that have thrilled, shocked and irritated us all. This level of excitement, as with all the other Olympics, has to come to an end and an Olympic end is always magnificent. Usually the Closing ceremony is greater in glory and celebration than the Opening celebration. The organizers, the participants and the people want to stretch the Olympic mood and spirit just a little longer. On the 28th of February at 5:30PM EST, the Vancouver Winter Olympics 2010 will start its closing ceremony. This ceremony will be celebrated until 7:30PM EST and will be held at the 55,000-seater BC Place Stadium in Vancouver

The BC Place Stadium has the largest air-supported stadium roof of any indoor stadium in North America. This allows for a tremendous amount of projection capabilities and eliminates the adverse effects of weather. Thus, the weather-proof stadium has been under constant preparation for the Opening, Closing and Victory celebrations of the Olympics. BC Place Stadium is also the venue for the Opening celebrations of the Paralympics.

We are all excited with the closing ceremony. You can watch the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics closing ceremony here or here

[UPDATE]

The 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics closing ceremony already ended.

The ceremony started with a touch of humor when an actor portraying an electrician mimed connecting a switch to connect the fourth leg of the stadium cauldron that failed to emerge from the floor during the Opening Ceremony. Former Canadian speedskater Catriona Le May Doan, who was left without a leg to light when the cauldron malfunctioned Feb. 12, finally was able to touch the flame to life.

Athletes and spectators were treated to the best of Canada’s popular culture — comedian Catherine O’Hara, actors Michael J. Fox, whose ovation from the crowd trailed only that accorded the hockey team, and William Shatner, and singers Michael Buble, Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morissette and Nickelback.

Of all the standing ovations of the ceremony, the most applauded was when International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge gave reference to the late Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili.
