Toronto sports fans will have a rare chance to celebrate a championship win Tuesday, when the Grey Cup-winning Argonauts hoist their new trophy in a downtown victory parade.
The Argos will kick off their first Grey Cup victory parade since 2004 on Wellington Street.
A fleet of 28 pickup trucks and one sport convertible will carry the players, coaches and their families westbound from Yonge Street to Bay, where they'll veer north.
The Argos Cheerleaders and the Argonotes pep band will be there, marching alongside a pair of local high-school squads that work with the team. Several pipe bands and a full complement of Toronto Fire, EMS and TTC honour guards will also take part, as the procession culminates Nathan Philips Square.
That's where Mayor Rob Ford is slated to proclaim it "Toronto Argonauts Day" in the city.
The celebrations are in honour of the Argonauts' 35-22 homefield victory over the Calgary Stampeders Sunday night, ending this year’s CFL season.
