People are expected to line up along Queen Street East before the parade kicks off at 2 p.m., starting at Neville Park Boulevard.

Some road closures are expected to begin at 10 a.m. before full road closures take effect closer to the beginning of the parade.

While the road closures may cause headaches for some drivers on Sunday, it’s important to note that police said they will not be enforcing some on-street parking laws this weekend.

Parking enforcement officers will not be checking pay-and-display or metered areas and rush hour routes, but all other laws will continue to be enforced, according to police.
