Just about any sport geek drools over the thought of attending the Toronto Pan Am fiesta, just as it comes around the corner. This occurrence is pretty rare, considering the fact that these games take place once every four years, quite like the Olympics. Turning 17 this 2015, this festival will shed light on the whole of Canada as a host of a big event.
Starting on the 10th of July, the Toronto Pan Am Games will run for 16 days, ending on the 26th of July. Having witnessed the last Pan Am Games that were held in Mexico, I can say for certain that there will be attendees of all ages and ethnicities to witness this colossal event. According to fanatics, there will be over 7000 athletes from the Caribbean and the United States of America, ready to compete with all that they have. The tickets will be quite affordable too, their cost ranging from $15 to $45 only. Individuals who are under 16 and above 65 will be granted a discount, which makes it possible for you to attend these games with your entire family.
