Thirty former Olympians will be a part of the city’s celebration, welcoming the Olympic torch back to Calgary.

The flame will make its way today to Olympic Plaza via Macleod Trail and prior to that the former Olympians will be available to sign autographs and have pictures taken in an Olympic bobsled. A giant banner of support for 2010 athletes will be available for visitors to sign.

Terri Clark and Crystal Plamondon will provide live entertainment during the free City of Calgary event, beginning at 5 p.m.
