Whitefish will welcome home Olympian Maggie Voisin with a hometown celebration today. Voisin placed fourth in the Olympic Slopestyle event in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
The community is encouraged to gather along Central Avenue at 4 p.m. as the Whitefish Fire Department gives her an honorary fire truck ride through downtown.
After the ride, Whitefish Mayor John Muhlfeld will make a special proclamation and the Whitefish Winter Carnival Royalty will knight Maggie in a ceremony outside the O’Shaughnessy Center.
“It’s an honor to welcome hometown hero Maggie Voisin back to Whitefish from the 2018 Winter Olympic Games,” said Mayor John Muhlfeld.
Voisin said she’s glad to be home again.
“After one of the most exciting seasons of my life, I’m so thrilled to get back to Whitefish to share those incredible experiences,” Voisin said. “Thank you to everyone for the tremendous amount of support and for giving me every reason to put my heart into making Montana proud!”
