With all the road closures and the traffic chaos from the HOV lanes, it wouldn’t be hard to believe the Pan Am Games are in full swing. But they aren’t because the opening ceremonies are tonight… The Rogers Centre will be playing host to the big celebration that has had very few leaked details so most of the show is still a mystery. The ceremony will feature over 600 performers from 25 countries and will be a two and a half hour show.
The games have been getting a lot of gruff from the city over the HOV lanes (which are still ridiculous) but hopefully now that they ‘re finally starting people can jump on board and really support some of these athletes. Most of the participants are between the ages of 18-24 and there is a lot from the GTA.
