The Calgary Stampeders will take on the Toronto Argonauts in the final battle of the CFL season on Sunday to see who will walk away with the coveted cup.
Grey Cup festivities have been going on all week and Stamps fans are taking over Toronto hotels and celebrating on Front Street.
Calgary’s Mayor Naheed Nenshi is also in Toronto for the big game and has brought along a Stamps Jersey for his Toronto counterpart to wear should the Stamps win.
“It’s very nice. Its number one like mine and says Ford,” said Mayor Nenshi.
A mega pancake breakfast was also held on Friday in the heart of the city and even fans from other teams got in on the action.
“We're here to party - here to make the Grey Cup Grey Cup,” said one Riders fan.
Officials at the Calgary Tower say they got approval late Friday afternoon to light the torch on the top of the tower if the Stamps win the cup.
The 100th Grey Cup gets underway on Sunday, November 25 at 4:00 p.m. MST from Toronto.
