— PARADE —
Mississauga Latin Festival 2023
One of the most important attractions at the Mississauga Latin Festival is the parade. Every year the parade is headed by the Mississauga Mayor, Councillors from the area as well as Provincial and Federal representatives. Each year, Latin American countries are represented by delegations that put together a beautiful display of traditional costumes, musical groups with percussion and wind instruments such as "Papayeras" and "Chirimias" that engage the audience and the dancers along the parade’s route. Throughout the years, the parade has welcomed participants from the other continents that want to have their country represented in the parade that has grown to be not only a Latin American parade, but a parade of the cultures.
