      ALSO (something a little different)-Toronto Vintage Easter Parade

      Join us Sunday, March 31st 2013 for the 2nd Annual Toronto Vintage Easter Parade!

      Based on the traditional pedestrian Easter Parade that takes place in New York City, and which the fabulous Fred Astaire & Judy Garland film was based around, we'll be walking a dedicated route in our vintage finest.

      *This is not a big parade with floats and businesses and silly costumes. This is an organized parade of pedestrians, dressed in their finest, preferably in a living history and vintage spirit.

      You can read about last year's event here.
