Looking for a cool place to see the Raptors game?
Looking for a Jurassic Park near you?
The Toronto Raptors have reached their first NBA finals and Raps owners Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, are making it easy for fans to get together to watch the series against the Golden State Warriors.
MLSE has approved a number of local venues - both indoors and out - to set up their own Jurassic Park viewing areas.
Midland has been on board since the beginning, setting up their outdoor screen in the Bay Street parking lot; the BMC in Barrie and the Wasaga RecPlex are other locations for area fans to gather to watch the games.
The most recent location approved by MLSE for our region may also be the most interesting.
The Muskoka Drive-In will broadcast games on their big screen, starting with game five Monday night.
The Muskoka Drive-In is one of Canada's oldest, and the Raptors games will be shown on the original cement screen, which was built in 1952 on top of Canadian Shield - it doesn't get much more Canadian than that. On top of that the games will also be shown on the second big screen.
They are calling it JURASSIC PARK NORTH - and it's a FREE event, open to all ages. They are asking people to donate non perishable items for the food banks but it is not mandatory. You have the option to sit in your car to watch or join others outside of the vehicles - and walk ins will also be allowed if the 250 car spaces are full. The snack Bar & BBQ will be open. No outside food or drink will be allowed. Gates open at 7pm and attendance will be first come basis.
GO RAPTORS GO!!!
