Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games - one year to go

A large digital clock unveiled at #Toronto City Hall shows the time remaining before next year's summer games. In addition to the clock there was a ton of activities and displays in Nathan Phillips Square during the two day We are Pan Am festival. "Toronto is proud to be the Host City of the 2015 Games and this one-year countdown event is just a preview of what the celebrations will be like during the Games," said Mayor Rob Ford. "The Games are on track to deliver a great legacy of new and improved sport and recreation facilities and community programming in neighbourhoods across Toronto. Now it's time for everyone to join in the fun, get involved and celebrate the TORONTO 2015 Games."
My favourite display was the human foosball game played out in the middle of the square. Popular activities included ball hockey and soccer on the covered over pond under the freedom arches. "The exhibit also features facility investments and celebration programs that are being funded by the City of Toronto, Province of Ontario, the Government of Canada and other stakeholders and sponsors. Together, these investments will transform the city, help make the TORONTO 2015 Games the best Pan Am Games ever and leave behind an outstanding legacy of benefits for Toronto residents and businesses."
Bay Street was closed on Saturday, July 12, 2014 to provide more room for the free entertainment and gathering of visitors as musical groups, dancers, flames and fireworks were scheduled.
