raptors tailgate party toronto

Raptors kick off season with tailgate party outside ACC

If you're still getting over the baseball season, perhaps a little basketball might distract you. Especially since tomorrow is the Raptors' home opener at the Air Canada Centre. And if you didn't get tickets to the game, you can thankfully still get in on all of the action.

That's because there will be a tailgate party outside the ACC tomorrow night before the Raptors take on the Detroit Pistons.

The party starts at 6 p.m., but opens to the public half an hour earlier at 5:30 p.m. NBA TV Canada's Akil Augustine will be there along with the Raptors' mascot and the Raptors Dance Pak.

If you're hungry, Real Sports will be serving (portable) food from a tent on site and Coors will be operating a few mobile bars.
