Peterborough, ON – Due to the rain, the live screening of the NBA Finals Game 6 that was planned for Millennium Park tonight has been cancelled.

Mayor Diane Therrien, who was hosting the event, explained that the equipment for the outdoor screening of the broadcast, has to be set up early and it can’t get wet. With the rain today and potentially into tonight, the event had to be cancelled.

If Game 7 is necessary, Therrien plans to host the live screening in Millennium Park on Sunday, June 16, starting at 8 p.m., weather permitting.
