The 23rd annual St. Patrick's Day Parade was held in Toronto on March 14, 2010 at noon. (http://www.topatrick.com).
This is the largest St Patrick's Day Parade in North America. Early morning showers didn't discourage enthusiastic audience members, who lined the streets with umbrellas in hand. The rain stopped just before the parade began.
This is the 4th year that the Tian Guo Marching Band was invited to attend. The band was the only entry from the Chinese community and had the most members.
Spectators greeted the band enthusiastically and complemented members along the parade route.
