There's a drive-in Raptors viewing party in Toronto tonight

Aug 10 2020, 8:35 pm

There’s a Toronto Raptors viewing party on Monday for fans who are looking for a (safe) crowd experience during this very unique NBA season.

The Raps will be playing against the Milwaukee Bucks at 6:30 pm tonight and super fans have the chance to watch it all go down live on a massive 40-foot screen, during a drive-in viewing party at OLG Play Stage in Ontario Place.

“For the first time, Raptors fans will be able to come together safely to enjoy and experience the excitement of this highly anticipated matchup at the new drive-in entertainment venue,” organizers said in a release. “With the skyline as the backdrop, the event will include special guests, giveaways as well as special programming before the game.”

Besides just the game, Mark Strong, Toronto Raptors in-arena host, will be leading the pre-show alongside the Raptors’ mascot.

Admission for each vehicle requires a minimum donation of $25, which will go toward the MLSE Foundation and will be available on a game-by-game basis.

Food and apparel will also be for sale through RS (Real Sports) and Real Sports Apparel when purchasing tickets online as well as on-site.

Gates open at 4:30 pm, the festivities kick-off at 6 pm, with the game scheduled for 6:30 pm. Vehicles are ticketed for a specific lot, and parking is general admission, so get there early to grab the perfect spot.

For everyone’s safety, there will be a few basic rules. No fan is allowed to leave their vehicle except to go to the restroom, masks and face coverings must be worn outside of vehicles, and everyone is expected to follow physical distancing guidelines at all times.

There will also be no alcohol, coolers, glass bottles, or cameras with detachable lenses allowed.

Just remember to bring the noise (safely) when it’s time to cheer for our boys.
