Let the "Special Olympics World Winter Games" begin!


Opening Ceremonies are tomorrow at 2pm at the Idaho Center in Nampa. The tickets to this event are all gone, but the good news is - you won't miss a thing! We'll be broadcasting the event from start to finish right here on KTVB, and even online at! It's sure to be an inspirational start to the games... If I have the chance to go (which I'm still not sure about yet, tickets are THAT hard to get!) - I will certainly take pictures and share them with you on Monday.

We have confirmed that the Vice President Joe Biden is coming to Idaho for the games!

Lots of other big stars coming into Idaho too... actor/politician Governor Arnold Schwartzenegger:


Tom Arnold (of Roseanne Barr fame), Kenny G, Darius Rucker from HOOTIE and the Blowfish... etc etc.

Crews are busy getting the Idaho Center ready as you read this... it's crunch time and everything needs to be done in time for tomorrow. It's going to be the biggest thing Idaho has ever seen or hosted! Just wait...

MAKE SURE YOU TUNE IN TOMORROW AT 2pm, Mark, Carolyn and Dee will be there to bring you this very special event LIVE!
