“Road to Rio” Completed Its Tour in Venice Beach

This past weekend (July 23-24), the Road to Rio tour completed its nine-stop journey in my backyard, Los Angeles. The tour was part of the ‘100 Day Countdown‘ to the Olympics, where Team USA fans got to experience athlete meet and greets, giveaways, virtual-reality experiences, performances, and interactive Team USA activities.

As an AT&T Influencer, I was invited out to Venice Beach to experience first-hand all the exciting activations AT&T and the USOC (United States Olympic Committee) put together. Here’s me attempting to beat an Olympian’s time in Wheelchair Racing – didn’t even come close.

Road to Rio Activations

The Paralympic Wheelchair Racing was just one of the many great free activations they had at Road to Rio tour stops. Most noteworthy were the two pop-up trailers setup, featuring various things for Team USA fans to experience and AT&T’s Main Stage for performances and fireside chats. I personally loved seeing the old Olympic memorabilia: past uniforms, Olympic torches, Olympic medals, and more! In addition, they also had fun green screen setups that put you in various Olympic sports. Here’s a little girl posing as if she’s about to leap off of the high-dive.

In between all of the fun stuff you got to experience, there were performers on the AT&T Main Stage. Hailee Steinfeld was the featured act and in my opinion, did a fantastic job keeping the diverse crowd entertained. Oh, and of course, there were the Road to Rio Samba Dancers:

I want to thank AT&T again for making me an #ATTInfluencer and inviting me to these amazing events. As someone who loves the Olympics, especially the summer games, it was great to be out supporting our Team USA Olympians with other fans.
