I couldn't miss this photo opportunity!
Our city is hosting the Canada winter games in January. We've been preparing for this event for 3 years.
We've got two new arenas, an outdoor artificial speed skating oval , new cross country ski trails... When a city agrees to host an event like Canada winter games various governments come up with grants to build new modern facilities. An old elementary school has been turned into a sports administration center.
There are various things set up around the city to promote the city. One thing that's neat is the large red and white letters that say Red Deer. These are placed all over the city. I guess the city hopes that visitors will do as I did and take some photos.
The letters are close to 2 m (6 ft) high.

I couldn't resist this for someone who goes by the name of Red.
I'm a big cheering section for our city!
