It’s a major day for Toronto sports fans.

Tonight, the Raptors will face the Orlando Magic for game five on home court, while the Leafs will head into a do or die game seven against the Bruins in Boston.

Fans of both teams are encouraged to head to Maple Leaf Square this evening for a massive joint tailgate party.

Since the Raps are playing at home, the big screen will play the Raptors game, while smaller screens in the square will play the Leafs game to provide a combined tailgate experience for fans.

The areas along Bremner Blvd. (between Maple Leaf Square and York Street to Lower Simcoe Street) will include additional screens that will play the Leafs game.

New to tailgates this year is an enhanced digital stage that will capture the in-arena atmosphere and transform the square into the ultimate outdoor viewing party.

Fans attending the parties are encouraged to download the Leafs Mobile App and the Raptors Mobile App for exclusive access to contests giving them the chance to win tickets to all home playoff games.

Fans are encouraged to ride the TTC and GO Transit when heading to Maple Leaf Square.

Additionally, all businesses are open to the public on Bremner Blvd. during tailgates.
