But a full day of free commemorative events will take place at The Gateway beginning at 10 a.m., with winter Olympic athletes taking part in interactive winter sport demonstrations and commemorative exhibits.

The 2002 Winter Olympic Children’s Choir — now known as the One Voice Children’s Choir — will perform 1:15 p.m.-2:15 p.m. on the steps of the fountain at Olympic Legacy Plaza. Choir members will reunite under the direction of Masa Fukuda to perform hits from its Light Up the Land Olympic commemorative CD. The Sport Festival will also host the United States Olympic Committee’s "Road to London" Tour for the upcoming Summer Games.

At 7 p.m., you can Olympic watch ice skaters Sarah Hughes, David Pelletier and Jamie Sale and other top skaters pull out all the performing stops from the Stars On Ice Tour. Political boosters, meanwhile, will thrill to the sounds of Romney boasting of his managerial achievements 10 years after the fact as leader of "Team 2002."
