Stars on the Red Carpet at Tribeca Film Festival Screening of Marvel’s The Avengers #TheAvengersEvent

I spent this past Saturday evening among real heroes and movie stars! I had the honour of attending the closing night screening of Marvel’s The Avengers at the Tribeca Film Festival.  My mom and I went shopping in Halifax the week before and I bought a new dress to wear. We were supposed to dress “chic” and “stylish” in cocktail dresses and I was grateful for my mom helping me pick out my dress. My hair was another matter. I forgot all my hair products at home. The hotel was supposed to bring me up hairspray but never did. I called Jen from Eighty MPH Mom in a panic and asked if I could borrow her mousse. I normally always wear my hair in a ponytail so wearing it down and curly was a change.

When we arrived at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center, we were greeted by a mob of paparazzi and fans. It was crazy!!! It was like it looks on TV with people packed together and shouting and camera flashes everywhere. I was overwhelmed taking it all in, but in a good way! I said a little prayer that I wouldn’t fall in my heels.

Marshall gave us all our tickets to get in and we were told to get our cell phones and ID ready to check at the door. Everything was moving so quickly it was hard to keep us all together. We didn’t get to walk the Red Carpet, but we were very close to it- maybe 7 to 10 feet I think. I saw lots of movie stars as they came down the Red Carpet and talk with the press.

Here’s a glimpse of who was there that evening:

Michael J. Fox and his wife Tracy Pollan. I’ve been a huge Michael J. Fox fan since the early 80s when he was in Teen Wolf and Back to the Future. He’s also a Canadian.

This was my first time ever being this close to movie stars. I live in a small town in Nova Scotia and there’s no way I’ll run into any famous people while out doing my groceries. It was one of the coolest experiences of my life and a night I will never forget.
