A big Olympic happening will be going down on Thursday Oct. 1st, 2009 at the Hudson’s Bay Department store, downtown Vancouver. It’s time to see what Canadian Winter Olympic Athletes will be wearing at the games. Plus, the store is now decorated with huge Olympic Banners I am told (I will get pics very soon).
The Canadian Olympic Team Style Kits will be revealed with pumping DJ Music (DJ Hedspin) in the background, and guest appearances from the Cowboy Junkies at 12:15pm (remember them?), singer Dan Mangan at 3:30pm and Sam Roberts Band (5pm- don’t be late for the bearded one)
The first 500 people who show up at noon at the concierge desk will receive a free toque!
OMG, it’s going to be a “love it hate it weekend” I can see it all now!!
Just a heads up, but this Olympic clothing event does happen on the same day as Opening night of the NHL season on Hockey Night in Canada. Early game: Montreal Canadiens at Toronto Maple Leafs 4:15 pm PST. Vancouver Canucks at Calgary Flames 7pm PST.
So, it’s a tough choice for some: Free Sam Roberts concert in a store, or Habs and Leafs on the tube....
