Over 13 million cranberries grown in Richmond have been put together in Richmond’s Brighouse Park in the shape of the Canadian Olympic Committee logo. The display was originally intended to be floating in the Fraser River outside of the Richmond Speed Skating Oval used for the 2010 Winter Olympics but due to an early snow melt, the current (currant?) would be too strong and the display was moved to Brighouse Park. A ferris wheel has been set up for a birds eye view.

    Didn’t have a ferris wheel when I was out there for the Olympic Torch Relay Celebration. So it’s hard to tell what the rings are in my photo. Will have to go back. Beautiful shot.

    Only 3 days to go! Make sure you get a seat on the side of the display, I spent most of the journey leaning precariously out of the carriage to see around the stranger next to me. Line up was only 20 minutes long.
