The Toronto Raptors won the NBA championship with a 114-110 victory over the defending champion Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday, June 13. After a weekend of partying in Vegas, the Raptors are back in Toronto to celebrate with the fans in a victory parade downtown. This will be the one of the biggest events Toronto has seen in years, as the last “Big 4” sports championship for a Toronto team was the Blue Jays’ 1993 World Series victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.
The parade starts at 10:00 AM at Exhibition Place and will end with a rally in Nathan Phillips Square, near City Hall.

Some fans have gotten a head start on getting a good spot to take in the rally in Nathan Phillips Square.

I grew up a Cubs fan in Northwest Illinois and became an avid follower of the team during the Sosa-McGwire home run chase. Now I am the #1 Cubs fan in Toronto, Canada. You can find me on Twitter @Troll_Hamels (personal) and @farnorthsider (blog).
