The massive parade for the Raptors, honouring their first-ever NBA Championship, has ended — but the clean up has just begun.

Paradegoers who joined in on today’s massive celebrations seemed to forget that picking up after themselves is important.

Images showing piles of trash along the parade route were shared on social media.

 

And people were definitely not happy about the trashy aftermath.

The parade, which began at Princes’ Boulevard at 10 am, continued along Lakeshore, York Street and University Avenue before finishing up at Nathan Phillips Square.

The City of Toronto has not announced the official number of people in attendance it’s estimated that nearly 2 million flooded the streets to cheer on the championship team.

While the day began with jubilation, a shooting in the midst of the celebrations at Nathan Phillips Square in downtown Toronto left four people with injuries, according to police.
