Join your neighbours at Old Town Hall Sunday evening for game two of the NBA Finals between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors.
In a Facebook post the Town says:
Let’s make James Naismith proud! Almonte is truly the birthplace of basketball right? Or at least his inventor! How exciting is it to have a Canadian Team in the finals!
We’re so excited; we’ve decided to throw a party and you’re invited!
With permission from TSN & MLSE the Municipality of Mississippi Mills will be hosting a live outdoor screening of Game 2 of the NBA Finals between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors this Sunday evening at 8:00pm at Almonte Old Town Hall.
This is a free event! Come early and take your photo at our Naismith Statue. Don’t forget to bring a lawn chair!
The Raptors have a 1-0 lead over the Warriors in the best-of-seven series. Game two will be in Toronto Sunday night, before the series moves to Oakland. This is the first appearance by a Canadian team in the NBA finals.
Almonte is of course the home town of James Naismith, the inventor of basketball.
