Winnipeg hosts the Juno Awards this weekend, and preparations are in full swing for the big event.

At the MTS Centre, crews have been putting in 10-hour days to prepare for Sunday's award show — a production that involves a year's worth of preparation and careful co-ordination.

"This is probably the biggest one-of-a-kind show that happens," said technical producer Karel Noordover, as workers carefully unloaded pieces of the show set on Tuesday.

Others are taking in Juno-related events happening across the city, from high-school band and choir performances at the Manitoba legislature to a workshop at the West End Cultural Centre.
