So, it turns out that if you have a day off and enough spare time, you can actually just start your own Fringe traditions. I decided that it might be nice to give out a bunch of dumb awards to my friends in Edmonton and the whole thing kinda got outta hand, but ended up being a super fun way to end my tour. SO without any further ado, for anyone that missed them, here are the categories and winners of the 2012 ZACK ADAMS AWARDS (aka THE ZACKIES).
