The celebrations are still going strong in downtown Toronto.
The parade began several hours ago, but a massive turnout and overcrowding kept the Raptors from Nathan Philipps Square for about two hours longer than expected.
Spirits were still high, however, and just as the team showed up, a jam-packed Nathan Phillips Square was captured singing “O Canada.”
Longtime anthem singer Douglas Tranquada got the crowd started.
After that, the massive crowd in attendance took over, until Tranquada returned for the final line.
