Friday February 9,2018 is opening day for the Winter Olympic Games at the Downtown Market and is opening day for the first GR World of Winter event which runs from February 9 to 16. The downtown market's event Friday runs from 4pm to 8pm.You can drink from ice shot glasses, enjoy an "American Mule" instead of a Moscow Mule, play frozen beer pong, table top curling and classic yard games. There are over 50 ice sculptures downtown and there are free guided walking tours which leave from Rosa Parks Circle. On Friday it starts at 6pm and I believe you have to register in advance. Rosa Parks also has festivities on Friday including a watch party for the opening ceremony of the real Olympics. To start let's meet at the Downtown Market 5pm as parking and access is easier than by Rosa Parks. Plus we can warm up inside the market. We can carpool to Rosa Parks. This is a unique and different event so let me know if you are interested in being bold in the cold !
