Huge fireworks show promised for Pan Am Games closing ceremonies

The city of Toronto and Pan Am Games organizers are promising a huge fireworks display tonight. If you missed the show that took place in conjunction with the opening ceremonies, not to fret: tonight's is supposed to be bigger and better.

While no one will reveal just how much firepower will fuel the pyrotechnics, some of the following words have been thrown around to hype the show: "huge," "dazzling," "captivating." Given that the first show was more impressive than many expected, we could be in for something special tonight. Now the expectations are up!

The fireworks get underway at Nathan Phillips Square the CN Tower at 10 p.m., which will be followed by a huge display at the CN Tower the Nathan Phillips Quare show at around 10:40pm or so. If you head to the city hall for the first one, you'll have a pretty good vantage point for the second. Let's hope it all lives up to the hype.
