Remembrance Day services will be held at Little Trinity Church in Corktown, Fort York and at Old City Hall.

The biggest of all services, held at civic centres throughout the city, will at Old City Hall beginning at 10:45 a.m. on Nov. 11.

More than 1,000 people have crowded the Bay-Queen intersection for the annual ceremony in past years. A flypast will be performed by the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association and the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum.

Little Trinity Church will have a Remembrance Day Service at the War Memorial in Little Trinity Park on Nov 11 at 10:55 a.m. On Nov. 13, the church will start its service outside and gather at the War Memorial at 10:30 a.m., followed by worship in the church.

A service will be held Nov. 11 beginning at 10:45 a.m. at Fort York.

A unique ceremony is held every year at the Sunnybrook Veterans Centre that has operated for the past 68 years and is home to more than 475 vets from the Second World War and Korea.

There, on the eve of Nov. 11, Canadian flags will be planted in front of the Veterans’ Residence Centre and Sunnybrook grounds. When the veterans awake on Remembrance Day, there will be a patriotic sea of thousands of red and white flags in their honour.
