On September 24, 2011 the 60th annual Niagara Grape and Wine Festival was held in St. Catharines. Spectators included people from St Catharines, Niagara Falls and the U.S.A. This year 200,000 audience members attended the parade.
The Tian Guo Marching Band has been participating in the parade every year since 2006. Again this year, they received a warm welcome from both the onlookers and the event organizer. At the end of the march, the band was once again invited to return next year.
