Honda Indy at the Square

The famous square at Yonge-Dundas is full of Honda Indy Toronto promotions for today and tomorrow. There is a large stage set up for the pit stop challenge, tents with Hooters girls, a Pickle Barrel outdoor restaurant with Bud girls, motorcycles and a couple of race cars. OLG also has a tent and is doing a trivia challenge with some prizes for the winners. I also picked up a free Schick Quattro Titanium shaver.

Update: Paul Tracy (green shirt with sunglasses) was on hand to help support the charity Wounded Warriors. I donated $20 and signed the uniform that he will wear in Sunday's Indy race.

The Bud girls are dancing up a storm getting people hyped for the event and the Pickle Barrel/Budweiser outdoor patio.

The Hooters Girls helped promote the event with their smiles.

There were plenty of contests and prizes.

Honda Indy Toronto provides this information.
