Prince George MNP Torch Relay Stop
The MNP Canada Games Torch Relay is a significant element of the Canada Games and has united communities across the nation for the past 51 years. It will officially start in Ottawa from the Centennial Flame on Parliament Hill and will visit 48 communities across Canada before arriving in Red Deer for the Opening Ceremony of the 2019 Games.
The MNP Canada Games Torch Relay starts at the Prince George Civic Centre at 11 a.m. and will wind its way through downtown before returning to the Civic Centre just before noon for the official torch ceremony and a family-friendly community celebration. Join us free coffee, hot chocolate, snacks and giveaways and a chance to get your photo with the torch and the Canada Games mascot - Waskasoo – along with other mascot friends including Rowdy Cat and Fraser. Local sports clubs will also be there to share information and host games and sport demonstrations including curling, hockey, ringette, martial arts and more.
As the most recent host city for the Canada Winter Games in 2015, let's re-ignite the spirit of the Games in this celebration of amateur sport in our community! Prince George, it's your turn for the torchbearers to relay across your community! Come out and cheer them on as the flame heads towards Alberta.
