International Special Olympics Comes to Boise

Nearly 3,000 athletes from around the world have arrived in Boise, Sun Valley, and McCall to compete in a variety of winter sporting events as part of the International Special Olympics. The opening ceremonies held on Saturday were amazing. The Idaho Center was sold out and you could feel the emotion as the athletes entered and the torch was lighted.
Irene Deeley of Woman of Steel gallery in Garden City created the huge cauldron and its rainbow-colored supports. After the ceremony, it was moved downtown to the Grove plaza for all to enjoy. What an awesome event this is and what an honor for Boise to host it.
