The Toronto Raptors parade is now in full swing, and it’s a wildly packed event.
Just before noon, the city of Toronto reported that Nathan Phillips Square has reached max capacity.
No one else will be allowed on the Square as a result.

Meanwhile, GO Transit expects Raptors fans to heading back home at the same time as the usual rush hour commuters.
“We anticipate trains to be excessively packed,” says GO Transit’s Lakeshore West Train account on Twitter.
“For the safety of everyone we are asking people who can leave work early to please do so.”
Enjoy the parade and stay safe!
