(Colorado Springs, CO) -- While most are thinking Super Bowl this weekend, an Olympic celebration is just a week away in Colorado Springs. The United States Olympic Committee, Downtown Sports Authority and others will be holding a massive event for the Opening Ceremonies next Friday. A 17-foot LCD screen is being set up on Tejon Street just south of Platte Avenue to watch the event. This year's Winter Games are being held in Sochi , Russia. The local celebration will also include a symbolic lighting of the Olympic Cauldron. The celebration runs from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
