The 24th annual St. Patrick's Day Parade commenced at noon on Sunday, March 13, 2011, in downtown Toronto. The damp, cloudy weather did not stop the event participants and spectators from expressing their excitement.
This is the 5th year that The Tian Guo Marching Band has joined the parade. With over 100 entries participating, the band was the largest.
Audience members lined the streets waving, taking videos and photos and applauding the band members' performance.
