It’s been five years since Prince George was awarded the 2022 BC Summer Games.
After many months of planning and preparation, the Games have arrived in the City and the sun will be shining.
According to Environment Canada, sunny skies will see temperatures in P.G. reach into the mid-’20s for the next four days.
The first medal will go out at 3:00 this afternoon (Thursday) in equestrian.
The opening ceremony will be held tonight (Thursday) from 7:00 to 8:30 at CN Centre, however, due to limited space, it is closed to the general public.
You can live stream the ceremony here.
