Local 793 members and their families are invited to break out a little green and march in the Toronto St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday, March 11, 2018.
The union is once again one of the sponsors and participants in the parade and will have a float with a band playing Irish music.
This is a family-friendly event and all members and their families are invited to participate.
The parade starts at noon. Local 793 members and their families are asked to be there at 10:30 a.m.
The marshalling point for Local 793 members and their families is E15 at St. George Street and Hoskin Avenue. Please click here for the parade route.
Special jackets and hats will be given out to all participants while supplies last.
The parade begins on the corner of Bloor Street and St. George Street (near St. George subway station) and heads east on Bloor Street, turns south on Yonge Street and finally turns west on Queen Street, finishing at the parade reviewing stand at Nathan Phillips Square.
The parade route is about 3.5 kilometres in length and takes up to two and a half hours.
Access from the TTC subway can be made at the following stations: St. George, Bloor, Wellesley, College, Dundas and Queen.
So, if you’re Irish – or just want to be Irish for the day – come out to the parade and show support for your union at the same time.
Please don’t forget to dress appropriately for the weather.
And also please remember to set your clocks ahead the night before the parade.
