Mayor Tory Announces Return of St. Patrick’s Day Parade
WHEREAS today marks the much-anticipated return of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Toronto – after a two year absence – giving us a chance to enjoy an afternoon of music, dance, floats and fun.
This parade celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, was one of the first to be cancelled due to the pandemic and will be the first to make a comeback in 2022. Beyond marking the continued reopening of our city, the parade as always is an opportunity to recognize and acknowledge the many contributions that Irish Canadians have made and continue to make to the cultural fabric of our city.
While this past Thursday March 17 marked the “official” St. Patrick’s Day, Torontonians are owed a second St. Patrick’s Day in 2022 and what better day than today March 20, the day the parade returns to Toronto.
So come out to the parade and therefore, for a second time this year, enjoy a pint of beer in support of our hospitality businesses which have suffered so much.
NOW THEREFORE, I, Mayor John Tory, on behalf of Toronto City Council, do hereby proclaim March 20, 2022 as “St. Patrick’s Day 2 in 2022” in the City of Toronto.
