The Tokyo Olympics will end with a closing ceremony on Sunday, Aug. 8, 2021.
The event will also be rebroadcast in primetime on Sunday night starting at 7:30 p.m. EDT for those who do not want to get up early to watch the ceremonies.
The closing ceremony will take place on Aug. 8 at 8 p.m. local time (7 a.m. EDT) at the Tokyo Olympic Stadium. Due to the presence of COVID-19, there will be no fans watching from the stands.
The closing ceremony is a celebration that takes place at the end of every Olympics to mark the end of the games and the beginning of the Olympiad until the next summer games in Paris in 2024.
During the closing ceremony, hosts will put out the Olympic flame in Tokyo’s Olympic Stadium and the Olympic torch will begin its journey around the world until it reaches its final destination in Paris, France, in three years.
NBC will be broadcasting the ceremonies live on Sunday at 7 a.m. EDT, but will also be rebroadcasting the closing ceremonies in primetime at 7:30 p.m. EDT that same day.
