Well, there’s a headline that just makes sense, hey? Those heading downtown tonight should keep in mind that the Vancouver Olympic Cauldron will once again be lit, in honour of the start of the 2022 Winter Olympics. Here’s all the info you need to know if you’re thinking of swinging by.

The Cauldron, which was built for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, will be lit from 6PM to 10PM tonight (Friday, February 4th). The Cauldron has, at least historically, been lit for both Olympic and Paralympic events, because when you’ve got a 30-story tall sculpture with a backdrop as nice as this does, you might as well use it, right?

For those who can’t make it tonight, don’t worry. The Cauldron will also be lit for the start of the Paralympics as well. That’s scheduled to take place on Friday, March 4th during the same timeframe, so you’ve got options to see it in person. Which we do recommend since it’s, you know, a pretty wild sight to see.

So, whether you’re hoping to check it out just after sunset or during an after-dinner stroll, know that the Vancouver Olympic Cauldron will be burning bright tonight!
