Yes, the East York Parade is on on July 1st 2016 (and the event has a new website!)
If you're looking for a Toronto parade on Canada Day, look East, as in East York. This parade ends its route at Stan Wadlow ParkÂ which has a lot to offer in addition to the day's events especially planned for July 1st. it includes and outdoor pool, a large playground, a funky skatepark and access to Taylor Creek Park with its kilometrres of paved trails east and west of Stan Wadlow Park.
The East York Canada Day celebrations have been going on for over 50 years. They've got it all. There's a large midway section in the northern part of the park, food vendors and tents in the middle, shows on two stages and a fireworks display at 10 pm to top it off.
Read my blog dated June 27 for more tips and photos of the event.
