The Toronto Raptors, Maple Leafs, and TFC (soccer) are all playing key playoff matches tonight and fans are encouraged to arrive early if they want their spot in the Maple Leaf Square/Jurassic Park tailgate party to watch all the action. Gates open at 5 p.m. and the on stage programming starts at 5:40 p.m., but if past years are any indication, fans wanting to take in the festivities will need to arrive very early indeed.
As Round One of the 2018 NBA Playoffs continues, the Toronto Raptors will host the Washington Wizards at 7 p.m in a pivotal Game Five inside the Air Canada Centre. As usual, the Jurassic Park tailgate will be jumping.
Fans wishing to watch the Raptors game can enter Jurassic Park off Lakeshore Blvd.
The Toronto Maple Leafs are facing the Bruins on the road in Boston at 7:30 p.m. for a “win or go home” Game Seven. Temporary screens by York St. and Bremner Blvd. will broadcast the game to provide a combined tailgate experience for fans.
Leafs fans should enter Maple Leaf Square from York St./Bremner Blvd.
Once the Raptors game ends, the screens will switch to Leafs vs Bruins.
At about 9:30 p.m. fans will be able to watch Toronto FC face off against Chivas Guadalajara in the away (final) leg of the CONCACAF Champions League Final being played in Mexico. It’s a chance to see MLS history in the making.
Fans are encouraged to arrive early as space for this event is limited and a full house is expected.
