Today is a very special day, do you know why? Today is the opening ceremony for the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games!
For many people (including me), this is one of the most exciting parts of the Olympics. You get to meet the competing teams, there’s song and dance, the Olympic mascots are out in full force, and so much more!
To get you into the Olympic mood, I thought I’d post this video of the torch as it made its way down the The River Thames in London earlier today.
The opening ceremony starts today at 4:00 p.m Eastern Time (that means it’ll actually be 9:00 p.m in London!) Will you be watching?
If you do watch, leave a comment below and tell us what you thought!
Have a great weekend!
