Don’t worry Olympics fans, you don’t have to wait until next summer to enjoy the swimming, gymnastics, and weightlifting matches we know and love. This October, Guadalajara will be hosting the 2011 Pan American Games and they’ve brought along Ricky Martin to perform at the ceremonies.
Ricky will actually be singing during the closing night. There’s no word on what exact hits he’ll be belting out, but we’d say “Shake Your Bon-Bon” would be a safe bet.
The Games themselves promise to deliver plenty of excitement too. In total, there will be over 360 events spread across two weeks and nearly every country in Latin America will be participating.
We’re sure Martin and his extended fam will have a blast being a part of the Pan American experience. And seeing how the closing ceremony falls on October 30, they’ll be able to enjoy a bit of Mexico’s Día de las Muertos festivities too.
