The Love Park party will have various food trucks on hand, as well as music supplied by a DJ. Sixers mascot Franklin and the Sixers Sisters drum group will also be in attendance. Fans are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets to watch the game on a large LED screen.
At the Cecil B. Moore Recreation Center, fans won't have to bring their own chair, but they will have to arrive early, as only the first 150 people will be admitted.
"I know the 76ers will continue to make us proud in the playoffs, and I look forward to cheering them on with fellow Philadelphians this weekend," Mayor Jim Kenney said.
Both parties kick off at 6:30 p.m., one hour before tipoff.
