Everyone is Irish this weekend.

The city of Toronto will be marking St. Patrick's Day with its' annual parade on Sunday and it will affect anyone driving in the city.

The parade begins near Bloor St. and St. George Street. It will travel east on Bloor Street, then south on Yonge Street, west on Queen Street and will come to an end near Nathan Phillips Square.

The road closures will be in effect from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday.

Olympic gold medalist Katie Taylor will be the Grand Marshal for the parade. The 27-year-old Irish boxer is the current Irish, European, World and Olympic Champion.

The parade isn't the only event happening that day. The St. Patrick's Day run is a 5-kilometre route that begins at Bremner Boulevard and Lower Simcoe St. Road closures will be in effect from 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Runners will be heading north on Spadina Avenue and east on Wellington Street West, but Yonge Street may also be affected.

If you live in the west end of the city, the TTC will be performing track installation between St. Clair West and Lawrence West, so there won't be any service between those two stations. Shuttle buses will be running.
