WINNIPEG — Screaming teens packed St. Vital Centre on Saturday for the chance to get up close with some of Canada’s Juno stars.
Juno Fanfare brought out hundreds of music fans who lined up for hours as part of a meet and greet. Brett Kissel, Dean Brody, Gord Bamford, Kardinal Offishall, The Trews, and Tegan and Sara were some of the big names on hand signing autographs and posing for photographs.
The three-hour event is the most popular one of Juno Week and was also free of charge. Fans exchanged tickets for wristbands at the mall earlier this week in order to secure their spot in line.
The hardware will be handed out to artists on Sunday night during the Juno Awards broadcast from MTS Centre.
