The Ontario Model Soldier Society will be "On Parade" this year again at Toronto's Historic Fort York.   Thousands of model soldiers from many historical eras and countries will be on display - everything from small wargames figures to 1/6 scale figures and vehicles.

Due to construction work on the road access to the fort proper, this year's show will be held in the Fort York Visitors Centre.  (This is the same venue as last year.)
