The Argonauts will be lauded and help Toronto celebrate the team's win in Sunday’s 100th Grey Cup with a downtown parade this morning.

The Argos defeated the Calgary Stampeders 35-22 on home turf Sunday for the club’s 16th Grey Cup win and first since 2004.

The City of Toronto's parade is set to begin at 11:30 a.m. ET Tuesday at the corner of Wellington and Yonge streets.

It will move west on Wellington to Bay Street, turn north on Bay and conclude at Nathan Phillips Square, in front of city hall, where Argo players will take the stage and address the crowd.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has officially proclaimed Tuesday as Toronto Argonauts Day. He won a friendly bet with Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi, who will wear an Argos jersey in an upcoming council meeting and donate Ford’s weight in food (more than 300 pounds) to a local food bank.

The CFL team's players and coaches will also address the crowd.

Drivers heading downtown Tuesday can expect closures on the roads on or near the parade route.
