Toronto’s Greek community celebrated Greek Independence Day with a parade on Sunday along Danforth Avenue.

The parade started at Donlands and Danforth Avenues and headed west along Danforth to Broadview Avenue.

The annual parade marks the Greek War of Independence against the Ottoman Empire in the early 1800s which ultimately led to Greece’s formation as a independent state. The day is celebrated on March 25, and Toronto’s Greek community holds its parade on the Sunday closest to that date.
