Over a million people gathered across downtown Toronto on to join a parade held to celebrate the Toronto Raptors clinching their first NBA title.

“You think the parade is going to be amazing and you can’t even picture this,” Raptors coach Nick Nurse was quoted by Agence France-Presse (AFP) as saying. “It’s pretty cool.”

According to an AFP report, people began camping out overnight to fill Nathan Phillips Square to it’s 65,000-person capacity. Police also reportedly told people not to come to the stage area because it was so jam-packed, subway stations were closed to limit access.

The Raptors beat defending champion Golden State 114-110 on Thursday last week in California to capture the best-of-seven NBA Finals four games to two, setting the scene for the screaming and cheering celebration.

“It’s amazing,” Raptors star Kawhi Leonard was also quoted as saying in the AFP report. “Everybody is out. I don’t think anybody went to work today. Everybody got the day off. Look at it. It’s crazy.

“Thank you Canada for the support. We did it.”
