      A large crowd gathered at Metroplis at Metrown today for what was billed as the Juno Fan Fare.

      It offered lots of opportunities to have selfies taken with many popular Canadian musicians.

      Among those in attendance were Vancouver's own Marianas Trench, as well as Arkells, Dallas Smith, Scott Helman, Lights, and many others.

      It's not the only fan-friendly event taking place on Vancouver's Junos weekend.

      The Let's Hear It! LIVE outdoor fest continues at the Vancouver Art Gallery north plaza along West Georgia Street between Hornby and Howe streets.

      It's been showcasing Juno nominees and up-and-comers in a two-day event that celebrates the city's diversity.

      Peach Pit is scheduled to perform there at 6:45 p.m.

      And this evening from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., there's a Juno Gala Dinner & Awards, which can be streamed live at junotv.a and cbcmusic.ca/junos.

      It will feature performances by Caveboy, Clairmont the Second, Iskwé, James Barker Band, and Terra Lightfoot.

      Tomorrow night, the main event takes place at Rogers Arena, hosted by Michael Bublé.
