Toronto’s Greek community hosts OXI parade Sunday on Danforth Avenue

Toronto’s Greek community is holding its annual ‘NO’ (OXI) parade on Sunday, Oct. 28, at 1 p.m.
The event takes place on Danforth Avenue and honours the veterans of the 1940 event in which Greece refused the Italian ultimatum of occupation, and entered the Second World War.
Parade participants wearing Greek costumes and carrying Greek and Canadian flags will meet at Eastern Commerce Collegiate Institute and Donlands and Danforth avenues and move west along Danforth Avenue.
Following the parade, there will be a wreath-laying ceremony at the Alexander the Great Parkette, at the corner of Danforth and Logan avenues.

  1. Celebrating
    Ohi day represents unity against oppression and parade participants’ wearing
    Greek costume represents vivid culture of Greece. It felt good to see so many enthusiastic
    people took part.
