Day 1 - 2016 Rio Olympics Opening Night

Friday - August 5, 2016

Spent the evening with the local crowds along Copacabana Beach while the official Opening Ceremony was occurring across town.

Thousands gathered to watch the light show projected on the famous Belmond Copacabana Palace, take their pictures in front of the Olympic Rings and sand sculptures lining the way to the Beach Volleyball arena and merchandizing tents.
