SAVE THE DATE… The St. Patrick’s Day Parade is March 11th! You won’t need to find a pot of gold, or even be Irish, to get your eyes smiling this March. The St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Toronto is free and fun for everybody. It takes place on March 11th, which is the Sunday before the actual holiday on March 17th. The celebration of all things Irish starts at noon and lasts about 90 minutes. It begins on Bloor at St. George (near the subway station) and goes east over to Yonge Street. Then it heads down Yonge to Queen and turns west finishing up at Nathan Phillips Square. It’s a Toronto tradition that even if you don’t attend, you want to be aware of because those major streets will be shut down that day for a few hours.
