It's time to paint the town green.

Toronto's annual St. Patrick's Day parade gets moving at noon from Bloor and St. George. It will continue along Bloor to Yonge St., where it will head south to Queen and finish at Nathan Philips Square.

This is the 27th year for the parade, which celebrates leprechauns, four-leaf clovers and all things Irish. 

Olympic gold medallist Katie Taylor will be the parade's Grand Marshal. Taylor was the flag bearer for Ireland during the Opening Ceremonies at the 2012 London Olympics and went on to win a gold medal.

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

Toronto EMS will be along the parade route, collecting non-perishable food donations for the Daily Bread Food Bank.

Mayor Rob Ford says he will be attending.

There is also a 5k walk and run taking place Sunday. 

It gets started outside the Steamwhistle Brewery on Bremner Blvd at 10:30 a.m. The route goes westwards to Spadina, northwards to Wellington, then eastwards to Yonge St, and turns back around.
