There are just a few short months until the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympic games in Sochi, Russia.
On Thursday Lilly Broadcasting hosted an opening ceremony of our own.
We invited local businesses and friends to celebrate a kickoff party at the Russian Orthodox Church.
Anchors Amanda Post and Mike Ruzzi had a chance to enjoy the presentation along with our mascot Picaboo.
Traditional Russian dance entertained the crowd while they tasted authentic Russian cuisine.
Lilly Broadcasting is thrilled to bring another Olympics to Erie as the official station of the games.
"Sochi is just so exciting... this takes us right inside Russia," said General Manager Pam Forsyth. "It's patriotism, it's love of country, it's learning about other countries and it's about teamwork- and its teamwork at our station."
The Winter Olympic games will air February 7th through the 23rd.
