Markham will acknowledge the olympic feats of Andre DeGrasse.
The 21 year old local won three medals during the summer games, the most ever by a Canadian sprinter, and that warrants a day of his own.
Markham mayor Frank Scarpitti will officially declare Aug. 14, Andre De Grasse Day. The 14th the day DeGrasse won his first medal in Rio.
The parade starts at noon from the Crosby Arena, heading to the Markham Pan Am Centre for a party.
