I’d say about 100 people are already in chairs at Nathan Phillip Square ready for tomorrow’s parade. Insane. pic.twitter.com/QJb6jQYYDJ

Toronto is already preparing for 1.5-2 million fans to attend the championship parade and is looking forward to the greatest party the city has ever seen.
The Raptors were setting TV records throughout their championship run, which culminated with Game 6 of the NBA Finals drawing a staggering 82 share in the Toronto market.
