Massive crowds gather in Toronto for Raptors Championship Celebration

Nathan Phillips Square is a sea of red and purple this morning as thousands of fans stake out their spot for the final moments of today's Raptors Parade.

It's already a frenzy: hoards have been at the city square since last evening, eagerly awaiting the celebratory rally scheduled for 12:30 p.m. 

The early bird gets the worm, so obviously if you're just getting there now, you probably won't get the best vantage point.

Those who were following the parade route from Exhibition Place up University to Nathan Phillips will probably try to join the final rally too. 

By the time Leonard, Lowry, VanVleet, Green, and Siakam get to the main stage, it's likely going to be chaos. #WeTheCrowded.
