"On Parade" is the Ontario Model Soldier Society's annual public show and celebration of the hobby of model soldiers. 

The show is returning to the Legion this year.  As last year we will have the whole facility, both the meeting hall and the club room.

Show admission is $5 per adult.  Children under 12 are admitted free.

Early floor access (between 9 am and 10am) will cost you an additional $5.


We expect to have a full house of vendor tables again with a wide variety of hobby merchandise including toy soldiers new and vintage, books, connoisseur figure kits, action figures and more.

Shoppers are advised to bring cash as not all vendors are set up to accept credit cards or debit.  There is an ATM on site.

All our vendor tables have been booked.

W. Britain Company

Ken and Ericka Osen of the William Britain Company and Hudson and Allen Studios will be at the show.  They will be displaying some of Britain's latest releases including their new RCMP figures.  They will be on hand to chat with collectors.

Britain's has also kindly donated a supply of plastic toy soldiers for us to give out to children attending the show.


The Legion bar will be open for soft drikns, coffee and snacks.  However no alcohol will be served as this is a family friendly event.

There will be a sandwich service for lunch provided by volunteers from the International Order of daughters of the Empire.


For those coming from out of town, we have arranged a special rate at the nearby Stay Inn for those attending ON PARADE.

You must phone the motel and ask for the OMSS rate when booking. Your credit card will not be charged until you actually stay at the motel. Rates are available for 10 and 11th June, 2023.

The Stay Inn phone number is 416-259-7899.  The hotel is located at 560 Evans Ave., about a 10 minute drive from the show.
