More details on the Heartland & Kim's Convenience meet-and-greets

Fans are invited to take one photo with Amber Marshall and/or the stars of KIM'S CONVENIENCE. Please refrain from requesting autographs as we will be trying to move as many people through the line as possible.

A line will commence at the CBC site at 2 p.m. (an hour before the meet-and-greet begins). The CBC area will be on Princes' Blvd at Exhibition Place, near the Enercare Centre. Guests must purchase entrance to the CNE to gain access to the venue.

While efforts will be made to move as many people through the line as possible, a spot in this line does not guarantee anyone a photo. Spots cannot be held in the rush line if members of a group arrive separately. If fans absolutely want to wait in the line together, the patrons who arrive earlier are free to move down the line to wait with the patrons who arrived later. 

The line will be cut off at a certain point, depending on fan turnout and how quickly the photos are progressing.
