    Community Pride and Walk of Remembrance
    Saturday, June 18th, 2016 at 12pm-5.30pm
    On the afternoon of the Pride Parade, between 12pm and 5.30pm, we will be presenting our community fair together with food, drink and entertainment at our Community Pride event.
    This event will also offer a relaxed and welcoming setting where members of our LGBT community, their allies and all who advocate inclusivity can come together in mutual support and in reflection of the true values of Pride.
    The Falcon & Firkin, located on our parade route, will be home to this event. This friendly and fully inclusive English style pub offers a casual atmosphere, patio, pool tables, darts and a menu filled with traditional pub fare.
    As with all our events, we extend an invitation to all families and friends, not only within the LGBTQ2 community but also the community at large.
    Walk of Remembrance
    We are asking parade participants and community supporters to join us, shortly after the parade at around 2.45pm, on a Walk of Remembrance in honour of the victims of the recent tragedy in Orlando.
    Our walk will start from the Elgin Barrow arena and proceed north on Yonge to our Community Pride event at the Falcon & Firkin.
    As Yonge St will be reopening to traffic at this time, our walk will be confined to the sidewalk only. For safety, participants are asked to stay on the sidewalk at all times even if the roadway appears to be traffic free.
    If you are not participating in the parade, we invite you to follow it to Elgin Barrow arena so that you can join our Walk of Remembrance when it starts. Or, you can simply wait on Yonge St after the parade and join our walk as it proceeds north on Yonge.
