Raptors to hold championship parade Monday

Raptors to hold championship parade Monday After years of local jokes about "planning parade routes," the Toronto Raptors will give their city a championship procession on Monday. The parade will begin at 10 a.m. near the Raptors' OVO Athletic Centre and proceed east on Lake Shore Boulevard into the downtown core - ultimately ending outside Toronto's iconic City Hall, according to CP24's Stephanie Smyth. Toronto claimed its first NBA championship Thursday night with a Game 6 Finals victory in Oakland over the Warriors. It's the city's first "big four" professional sports title since the 1993 Blue Jays. Copyright © 2019 Score Media Ventures Inc. All rights reserved. Certain content reproduced under license.
