From those participating in the annual Robert Urich Race/Walk in the morning to a fireworks celebration in the evening, events on July 2 in the Gem City stressed all things Toronto.
The day included activities organized by the city's safety forces, the city chamber, city officials, the Toronto Fireworks Committee and the Focus in Toronto organization, and included everything from a helicopter landing in the parking lot of the Gem City Plaza to a Teeny Tiny Turtle Race in the afternoon and a spectacular fireworks display in the evening at Clarke Hinkle Stadium.
The day has grown to be a tradition in the Gem City, and it always attracts large crowds with all the events scheduled. It also puts Toronto's best foot forward for the entire Ohio Valley to see and enjoy the great things Toronto has to offer.
The events couldn't have been possible without the city, organizations and volunteers working together tirelessly for one goal in mind - to give Torontonians a reason for staying put, enjoy their great city and welcome visitors to show them the generosity of the city.
We commend all those who organized, donated funds and volunteered for the day.
