Grateful for Free Concert

The PanAm games are happening in Toronto. I am not a sports fan so I have not bought tickets to watch the games. However my curiosity did bring me out of my home, accompanied by my husband, to visit the Nathan Phillips Square downtown in Toronto.

I love the sign they have placed near the water and was pleased to read that the sign will stay there after the Games for a few months – and then will be moved around to various locations in the city.

The best thing about my visit to the Square, though, was the free concert. The last concert I had attended was before my little girl was born – and that was over 15 years ago! I enjoyed standing in the cooling night air to listen to the sounds of Wyclef Jean and, later, Serena Ryder.

At the end of the concert, we were treated with fireworks to the music of the theme song for the PanAm Games: Together We Are One by Serena Ryder.

This week I am grateful for the chance I had to experience the free concert – and be introduced to another talented musician. I am grateful for living in a city that offers its inhabitants the chance to experience live music and stunning fireowrks.

  1. I love the Toronto sign and it’s reflection in the water. I haven’t gone to any of the sporting events myself. I watched a few on t.v. but time has been short these days. It has been fun hearing about the athletes from various countries visiting Niagara. My daughter works in “The Parks” and tells me who she’s seen. I saw Uruguay’s team yesterday!


  2. Live music is always so much fun, but this looks extraordinarily fun with the fireworks and the celebration.

    I am grateful for many things this week. It’s hard to know where to start so I’ll just say I am grateful for this beautiful day we are having here, and for the north wind that is cooling things off. 🙂
