A two and one-half foot replica of the Canada Games dollar is prominently displayed by a life-size Pharley. The traditional torch towers twelve and one- half feet above street level and the Winter Games flags flank the torch on each side. The towing vehicle is also decorated with Pharley Q. swimming into a pot of gold representing the lottery prize.
