Mother nature has not cooperated with sports fans today.
Freezing rain has forced the Raptors and Maple Leafs to cancel today’s festivities at Maple Leaf Square.
Due to inclement weather conditions involving expected high winds and freezing rain, and with the safety of our fans in mind, Maple Leaf Square will be closed for both the Toronto Raptors game at 5:30 p.m. (as well as the Leafs broadcast following the conclusion of our game.)

It was supposed to be a busy day for fans at the outdoor viewing parties, as the Raptors playoff opener (5:30 pm start time) will likely overlap with the start of Game 2 of the Maple Leafs’ playoff game in Boston, which starts at 8 pm.
Rain outside ☔️
