You don't have to be a sports fan to know that tonight is arguably the biggest night Toronto sports history. All four of Toronto's major league teams are playing tonight, three of which are competing in the playoffs. The Raptors, Maple Leafs, Blue Jays, Toronto FC and the Toronto Marlies are winning for the city tonight.

Maple Leaf Square will be massive - so our Tailgate will be even bigger. A 3-game viewing party for the world’s city. Gates open 5PM.#WeTheNorth | #TeamToronto pic.twitter.com/F90jA29z2r
After putting up their best seasons yet, both the Raptors and the Leafs are prepared to face off and advance into the next round of the playoffs. For the first time, the Raptors have placed first in the Eastern conference and second place in the NBA. For the Leafs, this is the most amount of wins they've ever seen in a season.
With so many critical games happening on the same night, it's almost impossible for fans to choose just one. So Toronto thought, why not host a massive tailgate party and celebrate all the teams, all at once? Thousands are expected to head down to Maple Leaf Square tonight for a giant three-in-one viewing party.
Jurassic Park, the spot just outside the ACC where Raptors fans can watch the game, will be screening Game 5 against the Washington Wizards. The Leafs playoff game against the Boston Bruins will be set up on the other side of Maple Leaf Square, at York St. and Bremner Boulevard. That's also where fans can catch the Toronto FC CONCACAF Champions League matchup against Chivas Guadalajara.

Meanwhile, the Blue Jays will be up against the Red Sox at the Rogers Centre just a few blocks away, and the Toronto Marlies are facing off in the AHL playoffs.
Fans are welcome to start partying at Maple Leaf Square as early as 5 pm this evening. We're hoping for five-star celebrations tonight.
