5 brilliant photos on the eve of Pan Am Opening Ceremony
The Toronto 2015 Pan American Games officially begin on July 10 with the Opening Ceremony. On the eve of the Games, Toronto’s Nathan Philipps Square hosted a community celebration.
Our photographer Jason Ransom captured some of the gorgeous sights we can expect to see in the coming days during Canada’s biggest multi-event sports competition in history.
Here are five brilliant images from Jason’s lens:
