Several thousands of people were witness to burning of the symbol of Toronto, the City Hall. This actually happened every day during the PANAM Games as fireworks erupted after the last musical performance of the day.
This photo was captured just after the last salvo and even I have taken about 20 pretty displays, I decided to show this one, as it kind of signifies the end of successful PANAM games.
It ended with a BANG, as ageless Sérgio Mendes on keyboard (born 1941) brought his group of excellent musicians from Brasil to Canada for the last show. (vocalists Gracinha Leporace, Katie Hampton and Ayana Williams)
He received such a welcome, that he decided (only half joking) to take up a residence in our city.
