Toronto Through My Lens

St. Patrick’s Day Parade

In a nutshell, St. Patrick’s Day observes the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. The holiday has evolved into a celebration of Irish culture with parades, special foods, music, dancing, drinking (and more drinking, and more drinking) and the wearing of a whole lot of green.

Here’s a few shots of the parade that went down Yonge Street. In true Toronto style it proved to be a fully multi-cultural event:

    That is very multicultural indeed! I don’t think I ever went to the parade when I lived in Toronto. On one hand, it’s nice that it’s open to everybody, but on the other hand, it makes it kind of the same as every other parade.

    The parade is much bigger than I thought. It looked very colourful. And the rain held off.
