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.
