We The North has become We The Champs.

Toronto has been celebrating almost non-stop since the hometown Raptors dethroned the reigning-champion Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of The Finals last Thursday night.

Those good feelings and the championship buzz isn't about to wear off just yet, especially with the Raptors' championship parade making its way through downtown Toronto all day today.

Mayor John Tory declared Monday "We The North Day" in Toronto, after the NBA champions' slogan and some 1.5 million are expected to be at the parade.

Here's a quick look at the best moments, sound bites, photos and more from Toronto's title celebration ...
