Parade History

Since 1967, the Beaches Lions Club Easter Parade has brought the Beaches community to life every spring with fun and entertainment. In 1974, due to the massive popularity of the event, the parade was moved to Queen Street, and in 1981, The Lions became the official organizer of the parade.

With over 50,000 annual visitors from all over the world, the Beaches Easter Parade is the largest and longest-running Easter Parade in the world. Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, great strides were taken to ensure the celebration can endure, and thanks to a partnership with GO Transit, this beloved tradition continues in 2021 at Eglinton GO Station.
