While competition in PyeongChang, South Korea, is already underway, the Winter Olympics hasn’t officially started until the torch is lit at the Opening Ceremony.

The iconic ceremony, which is projected to be one of the coldest ever, is expected to draw nearly 35,000 fans at PyeongChang’s Olympic Stadium.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the Opening Ceremony.
