Airdate: Olympic Welcome Home Parade

Seven will air the welcome home parade for the 2008 Olympic Athletes taking place in Sydney next Monday at 12pm for 90 minutes.

A Melbourne parade airs at 1pm on Wednesday September 17th for one hour in Melbourne.

Given the time in between the closing ceremony and the welcome home parade is so long, it’s a shame they didn’t wait for the Paralympians to join them. From memory they get their own parade, hopefully to screen on ABC later.

Seven will follow the Melbourne parade with an Extreme: Celebrity Scandals special ….which may or may not be where some athletes eventually wind up in years to come.
