A spectacular show officially opens new Toronto landmark
  
Toronto, Ontario, Canada -- Toronto's most anticipated meeting place,
Yonge-Dundas Square, officially launches with a spectacular show on Friday, May
30. The event will incorporate live music, cirque performance and fireworks to
establish the square as Toronto's newest entertainment venue in the heart of
the city.

Weaving together music, dance and spectacle, this show will leave audiences
breathless. The launch incorporates 360 degrees of entertainment that is a true
celebration of life in Toronto. Stunning pyrotechnics and music from some of
Toronto's top talent will round out this free evening.

Yonge-Dundas Square uses a design of simple shapes and lines to create a sense
of vitality and serenity. The award winning design by Brown + Storey Architects
(Toronto) includes granite slabs throughout the Square, a canopied entrance, a
raised stage, state-of-the-art computerized fountains and lighting system and
T.O. Tix, Toronto's half price ticket booth. Designed as both a public space
and an event venue, the site embraces the character of its neighbourhood.

More details of the official Yonge-Dundas Square launch event, taking place on
Friday, May 30, will be announced soon.

Admission to the official opening of Yonge-Dundas Square is FREE and getting
there couldn't be easier! Yonge-Dundas Square is located at 1 Dundas Street
East. Take the TTC Yonge Line subway (exit Dundas station).
