paperstreet_tarantino_2We handed out the annual Pick of the Fringe awards  in a myriad of categories on Sunday night at the Victoria Events Centre. With a new rating system for voting this year, the audience was able to assign a show a 1 through 5, they voted and we counted, right up until show time.
