Will there be any celebrations or parades tomorrow for Ochi Day? Where would be the best place to see these?

To let anyone else know who searches on Ochi Day, we went to Kennedy Square and found the parade. It seemed to have begun about 10.30ish and lasted about an hour. There was Orthodox prayers, wreath laying, marching bands, traditional costumes and school children parading. Then all the families went for lunch in the nearby cafes. Unique experience we enjoyed witnessing although we understood almost none of it. A but like UK Remembrance Day but with sunshine and ice creams.

Thanks for the info Yvonne.

I’m sure it will help future visitors.
