Toronto, February 12 (CINEWS): This Family-Day long weekend is shaping up to be one of the busiest in the city. Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to descend upon the city for a bunch of high profile events starting with the NBA All-Star Weekend, there will be not only athletes as the star attractions but top celebrities who will make the scene.
There are a number of A-listers fans are expecting to spot in the Downtown core although all the action will be at the court for the All-Star Celebrity Game at Ricoh Coliseum on Friday. Drake will be directing the plays of Steve Nash, José Bautista, Stephan James, Win Butler, The Property Brothers, Milos Raonic, Tracy McGrady, Rick Fox and Tammy Sutton-Brown.
The opposing team, helmed by Kevin Hart, will feature Jason Sudeikis, Anthony Anderson, Joel David Moore, Nick Cannon,Chauncey Billups, Muggsy Bogues, Marc Lasry and Elena Delle Donne.
Other musical artists touching down this weekend. Snoop Dogg (AKA DJ Snoopadelic), Gwen Stefani, Usher, Fabolous, Travis Scott, A-Trak, Kardinal Offishall,Sting, Girl Talk, 2 Chainz, Future and A$AP Ferg (just to name a few) will be making appearances at games and/or club events.
If you’re up on your Kardashian drama, you probably know the names Amber Rose and Blac Chyna. The two personalities are joining forces for a club event Friday, and Amber will be hitting up NEST on Saturday.
Dave Chappelle is also in town – but not for any NBA-related shenanigans. He’s extended his stay in Toronto to do additional shows at the Danforth Music Hall over the weekend.
You would likely have to dunk on this ATM to pull out any cash.
A towering ATM is inside BMO’s flagship outlet at First Canadian Place ahead of the NBA All-Star weekend to cater to its very tall visitors.
Though, at 10-feet-tall even the tallest of NBA stars could not reach it without a spring in their step.
And as if all this isn’t enough reason to come on down, the Toronto Auto Show also kicks off this weekend. But if you are planning on coming into the city for any one of these many reasons, feel free to leave your car at home.
