Melbourne crowd expected for AFL parade

AAP logoAAP 29/09/2016

Melbourne will be packed with Bulldogs and Swans as the city enjoys a public holiday on the eve of the AFL grand final.

The grand final parade, featuring players from the Melbourne and Sydney teams, will start at the Old Treasury Building at midday and end at the Yarra Park parklands outside the MCG at 12.45pm.

This is the second year a public holiday on grand final eve has been held, the Labor government introducing it last year.

The holiday has come under fire from business groups, who believe it costs the state in lost productivity and higher wages.
