For a Torontonian, who attended one the first Raptors pre-season games in ’93, experienced the rise of Vince Carter, of Chris Bosh and felt the pride that came with the “We The North” campaign last year, I must say, it’s really exciting that the 2016 NBA All-Star Game will be held in Toronto!
Not only will it be the first time this city has hosts the occasion, turns out it is also the first time that the game will be held outside the United States.
The official week-end is February 12-14th but the game will be held Sunday, February 14, 2016.
Yes ladies, Valentine’s Day.
It will be held at the Air Canada Centre in downtown Toronto, which is also home of the Toronto Raptors.
There will be parties galore (check-out Lady Luck Entertainment for the good ones!) and activities celebrating the craziness that is All Star!
Let me know if you are thinking of making the trip “up”. As I had mentioned, Sunday is V-day but Monday is a holiday in some parts of Canada and the USA. This could be a great getaway to break-up the winter.
