There are only 26 days left until the Pan Am flame makes it way to Toronto, Ontario where it will stay for 16 days (July 10 – July 26) during the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games. Before the flame makes its way to the Opening Ceremonies in the metropolitan city, it will complete its Canadian journey visiting a number of provinces and cities across the country including a visit to the Niagara Region. While in Niagara Falls, the flame will be carried aboard one of Hornblower Niagara Cruises’ famous 700-passenger catamarans into the very heart of the mighty Canadian Horseshoe Falls.
