May 22, 2015 - The City of Kawartha Lakes is excited to announce the arrival of the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games Torch Relay, presented by President’s Choice ® and OLG. The torch relay will visit Victoria Park in Lindsay on June 4th from 12:30 p.m. until 2:30 p.m. The celebration features live local entertainment, TO2015 zone that will include sports activities and much more.

We invite all residents of the City of Kawartha Lakes and our surrounding neighbours to join with us in celebrating this momentous occasion. The torch relay route map is available at www.toronto2015.org/torch-relay

The TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games Torch Relay will be a 41-day journey that will share the Pan Am spirit in more than 130 communities. Deeply rooted in history and tradition, the Pan Am flame will be lit during a traditional ceremony in Teotihuacan, Mexico, before it travels to Canada.

The torch relay will start in Canada on May 30, 2015, and will make its final stop on July 10, 2015, at the Opening Ceremony of the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am Games.
