VANCOUVER - The venues are built and the tickets almost all sold.

So to mark the 100-day countdown to the 2010 Winter Games, organizers are focusing on celebration and on ceremony today.

In Vancouver, they'll officially take over the athletes' village for the 2010 Games, a (Canadian) $1 billion project that's created a lot of headaches for the City of Vancouver, which owns the site.

Up at the host mountain resort, Whistler officials are hosting three events, including a community celebration to rally residents around the Games.

In the U.S., a 100 day countdown event is being held at the Canadian embassy in D.C., that will include the unveiling of a countdown clock and live music.

The Olympics will begin on February 12.
