Banff Olympic Torch Relay Celebration - Featuring The Canadian Tenors

The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Torch Relay will be showcased in more than 1,000 communities across Canada. The Town of Banff will welcome the Olympic Torch on January 20, 2010 and hosting an evening celebration unlike any other in Canada to mark the occasion. It was just announced that the internationally renowned quartet The Canadian Tenors will be performing at the two-hour outdoor celebration, their only appearance at an Olympic Torch event.

"The Canadian Tenors have performed at amazing venues around the world, but it will be a first for us to perform with the snow-capped peaks of the Canadian Rockies as our backdrop" said Max Kubiak, from the management of The Canadian Tenors with Jeffrey Latimer Entertainment. "Olympic athletes have been born, raised and have trained in Banff National Park. It is very exciting that the Olympic torch will be coming to Banff considering the importance of our Olympic legacy" said Julie Canning, president and CEO of Banff Lake Louise Tourism.

The Olympic Torch Celebration is a free event that will take place in downtown Banff. The arrival of the torch and the festival atmosphere will allow everyone in attendance with a personal opportunity to share in the Olympic experience and spirit of the Games.

Make sure you are in Banff for this historic event...the Banff Aspen Lodge has a variety of different winter packages available to meet your needs!

The Bison Restaurant and Lounge

My current favourite restaurant in Banff is The Bison Restaurant and Lounge. There is a lounge when you first walk in the door, along with a deli that makes the most delicious sandwiches. I LOVE their 3 year old cheddar cheese...it is delish! Upstairs is the main restaurant and the food is amazing. My favourite dish is the Grilled Beef Tenderloin and whipped potatoes. There are also two patios to enjoy the sunshine and gorgeous views. My favourite drink at the Bison would have to be the Sangria's and they are available in the lounge area.

If in Banff and want to enjoy a fantastic dinner, check out the Bison...it is located downtown at 211 Bear Street and their website is http://thebison.ca/
