The celebrations will continue for the Toronto Argonauts’ Grey Cup victory with a parade in downtown Toronto on Tuesday, Nov. 27, beginning at 11:30 a.m.

The parade to celebrate the club’s 16th Grey Cup win – its first since 2004 – will begin at Wellington Street and Yonge Street (west side) and travel west to Bay Street. It will then turn north and proceed up Bay Street.

The parade will culminate on stage in Nathan Phillips Square with team introductions and Mayor Rob Ford reading a proclamation announcing Nov. 27 to be Toronto Argonauts Day.

The Argos Cheerleaders will welcome fans and the Argos’ own pep band, the Argonotes, will perform.

The procession will be led by a Toronto Police Ceremonial Unit and Pipe Band, two Toronto Police historical vehicles, Toronto Fire Pipe and Drum Bands, Toronto Fire Li’ Red Antique Fire Truck, Toronto Fire Command Unit, Toronto Firefighters’ War Veterans Association Colour Guard, Toronto EMS Ambulance and Honour guard, TTC Honour Guard and Commission car as well as the St. Michael’s Drumline.

A pair of local high school football teams from the TDSB, as part of the Argonauts’ Level the Playing Field program, presented by Tim Hortons – North Albion Collegiate and Sir Robert L. Borden – will also participate in the parade.

The Argos won a rare home Grey Cup Sunday at the Rogers Centre 35-22 over the Calgary Stampeders.
