Glasgow welcomed a large part of the world with a diverse and colorful opening ceremony that signalled the start of the 20th Commonwealth Games at Celtic Park. A vibrant display of tartan-clad dancers, pipe bands and kilted entertainers kicked off 11 days of sporting endeavour. Famed singers Rod Stewart and Susan Boyle, along with over 3,000 volunteers, helped provide the entertainment for a packed stadium as they welcomed the 6,500 athletes from 71 mostly former British colonies.
