Spock Is Heading To Vulcan... Canada

Spock Is Heading To Vulcan... Canada


Leonard Nimoy is heading to a very special place in the Great White North.  It seems that Spock is having a home coming of sorts in the small Alberta town of Vulcan.  March April 23rd is the arrival date and it looks like quite an event is in the works.

According to the Vulcan Advocate, Mr. Nimoy will arrive at 2:30pm on the 23rd Local and officials, including Tom Grant, the mayor of Vulcan, will get a chance to meet him.

Shortly after, starting at around 3 p.m., Nimoy will be part of the parade, which will start at the Tourism and Trek Station and run down to the intersection on Centre Street and Third Avenue.

"We're thrilled and honoured that he'll be coming," said Dayna Dickens, Vulcan's tourism co-ordinator.

The community as a whole has been coming together to work towards getting ready for the visit, said Dickens.

"That's wonderful to see," she added.

After the parade, at around 3:30 p.m., the action will move on to the stage down town, where a few speeches are planned, followed by the unveiling of the Spock bust and Vulcan salute hand print.

Nimoy's scheduled departure is set for 4:15 p.m. His visit was made possible through coordination with the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo, which runs April 23-24 in Calgary, and will feature other special guests like Brent Spiner, who played Data on Star Trek: the Next Generation, and Billy Dee Williams, who play Lando Calrissian in Star Wars, to name just a few.
