The Degrassi meet & greet took place in Toronto yesterday, and it was an amazing time! The sun was shining, the fangirls were out in full force; everybody had so much fun. My pictures have finally been uploaded, so you can check them out here or by clicking the thumbnails. A word about these photos – I don’t tag my photos. Mostly because I think that it looks ugly. But if you guys could please not claim them as your own. I would really appreciate it. Just a little mention about where you got them would be nice. Otherwise use them however you want!
There were so many fans at the meet & greet – it was insane. I thought that there wouldn’t be too many, because the event wasn’t advertised all that much and this is Toronto and all. lol. But even though Ashley & I got there like 2.5 hours early, there was already a lineup down the street! It’s amazing to see how popular Degrassi is in Toronto now. People were screaming when the cast came out. I’ve never seen it like that in Toronto before. Usually these events are so low key. Degrassi cast: You guys are kinda like a big deal.
The event was basically a picture session. So fans went up in groups to have their pictures taken professionally by a photographer. It only left a few seconds to talk to the cast. But Charlotte recognized me right away from the site which was amazing. I still can’t believe it. After the picture was taken, all the fans congregated over to the side. It was practically a mosh pit. Kids were yelling random things at the cast, and like throwing their phone numbers at the boys and everything. It was a little crazy and sometimes I felt sorry for them. But it was also really cute haha.
It was also a lot of fun to get to meet other fans in the lineup and around the event. We pretty much just stood in a line for 2 hours, so we all talked Degrassi the entire time. A couple of people I talked to knew about Degrassi-Fans.com as well. That was probably the coolest part for me. I just do this for fun, so to have people coming up to me and saying they love the site is incredible.
I had the most amazing time, and I think all of the other fans did as well! It was great to talk to some of you. Hopefully they do more of these soon, and not just in Toronto.
