Pan Am Flame to Light up St. Thomas
The TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games are happening this summer, but before the games begin, the flame is making the rounds. The flame was lit in Teotihuacan Mexico before coming to Canada to begin its 5000+ kilometre nationwide journey on May 30th. Its final stop will be in Toronto for the Opening Ceremony of the games July 10th.
St. Thomas was selected as one of more than 130 communities on the route, and will accompany its arrival with a celebration. On June 17th, set in the heart of downtown in the historic L&PS Corridor, the torch is scheduled to arrive at 5:07pm. Following its arrival will be time for photo ops and speeches by local dignitaries.
