Good news for fans of sport in Toronto!!! The Olympic torch will arrive to the city this Thursday, the 17th. Until Saturday, the 19th, more than 1, 000 torchbearers all dressed up in white will carry it for 48 kilometers through the streets of Toronto. Come and support them!
At exactly 1:52 p.m. on Thursday the bearers will enter the city at Yonge Street and Steeles Avenue. Starting at 1 p.m., you can enjoy sporting and entertainment activities at the civic centre. In the evening, from 6 to 8 p.m. various local, national and international artists will perform at the community celebration. Fireworks will not be missing.
