The Story

The Ontario’s Celebration Zone, a two temporary pavilions, was a hub for festivities during the Toronto 2015 Pan and Parapan American Games. EllisDon was selected through a competitive process by the Ontario Tourism Marketing Partnership Corporation to bring a dynamic experience to promote Ontario businesses and entertainment during the PanAm and Parapan Games.

This was a challenge in the fact it needed to be set up in only seven day - but one we overcame, and had a lot of fun doing.
