Easter is just around the corner and Toronto is getting ready for the annual Easter parade. While many Torontonians might have already hit the road to enjoy the long weekend, those who have decided to stay back will be eagerly looking forward to Easter festivities in the city.

Though Easter parades are spectacular to look at and fun to be a part of, the roadblocks that come along with it can dampen your holiday mood. In the spirit of Easter, we decided to make your travel across Toronto easier by giving out the information of roads that will be shut for the parades.
