The TORONTO2015 Pan Am Games Torch Relay arrived in Vaughan on Wednesday, June 24. A large crowd, including hundreds of children from local schools, was on hand to cheer on the arrival of the flame and the lighting of the cauldron.

The event featured live entertainment and an appearance by PACHI, the official TORONTO2015 mascot. In addition to the celebration event at City Hall, the torch relay made stops at Kleinburg Public School, Canada’s Wonderland and the Joseph and Wolf Lebovic Jewish Community Campus.

Façade Academy provided face painting with the official Pan Am torch logo to hundreds of kids, and had a great time celebrating the arrival of the famous torch in the community!
