raptors tailgate party

This is how Raptors fans tailgate for the playoffs

The Toronto Raptors began their 2016 playoff run on Saturday with (yet another) first game loss, but it didn't diminish the frenzied scene outside the Air Canada Centre. And you can bet the early-series stumble will only have fans even more enthusiastically pumping up the team come game two. Raptors Fan Zone parties bring out the best outfits, signs, and a hyped-up vibe that's completely infectious.
