The 33rd annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade is set to hit Toronto’s streets on Sunday, March 15.
The annual pageant of giant balloons, floats, mascots, clowns, marching bands, and beloved Irish characters is one of the best events in the month of March, signifying the promised return of spring.
The massive Toronto festivity starts at noon, beginning at the corner of Queen’s Park and Bloor Street West before heading down Yonge Street and finishing at Nathan Phillips Square.
The parade will be TTC accessible from Museum, Bloor, Wellesley, College, Dundas and Queen stations.
Such a massive downtown takeover also means a number of road closures, the details of which are yet to be announced.
Spectators can expect the march to last about an hour and a half, so be sure to dress for whatever the weather’s looking like that day.
Get ready for some marching bands, family-fun, and a whole lot of green!
When: Sunday, March 15 from noon
Where: Beginning at Queen’s Park and Bloor Street West
