Yesterday the Portuguese community in Toronto held their 29th annual Portugal Day parade. It was a lively, happy occasion. Hundreds of people lined Dundas Street West between Lansdowne and Trinity Bellwoods Park to watch the parade. They showed their Portuguese colours with flags, banners, hats, soccer shirts, and lots of red clothes! Young soccer players demonstrated their skills. People of all ages wore traditional dress from different parts of Portugal as they walked and danced along the parade route. There was music too – bagpipes, marching bands, and music to dance to.
