Pan Am Games come to Berczy

18 Jul

IMG_4138The spirit of the Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games came to Berczy Park on July 11-12, as the Old Town Toronto/St Lawrence Market Neighbrhd BIA hosted the “1812 Pan Am Games in Berczy Park”.

The BIA’s Old Town Toronto historic re-enactors joined recreation staff, volunteers and youth from the new Cherry Street YMCA in Corktown (currently a Pan Am Athlete’s Village facility) and the Ontario Early Years Drop in Centre to host family activities typical in year 1812 Old Town –  from hoop races and ball in cup games to sword fighting competitions – creating a Pan Am Games-inspired sporting event, with a twist.

Thanks to everyone who helped organize this great event on two scorching summer afternoons.
