(KSL News) -- The Olympic Cauldron at Rice Eccles Stadium will burn once again tomorrow night.

As this time more than 200 Russian high school athletes and coaches are boarding a plane bound for Salt Lake City. They're coming for the Moscow-Utah Youth Games.

You may remember, Utah athletes traveled to Russia last summer for the first installment.

Andrei Kirilenko, Youth Games Ambassador: "I'm very happy it's comoing ecause I think it's a good experience for the young kids from both countries. It's a pretty good bridge for MOscow and Utah -- actually, Russia and America."

Opening ceremonies kick off at 6:30 p.m., and you're invited. There will be fireworks, a performance by Utah's own American Idol Carmen Rasmussen, and a secret celebrity will light the cauldron.

Tickets are $10. They can be purchased at Rice Eccles Stadium or by calling 581-UTIX.
