Meeting your favorite celebrities is always a fun experience and you have the perfect opportunity coming up.

The Experience Of Meeting Celebrities In Illinois

Most residents of Illinois have a favorite celebrity that they would like to meet someday. They could be a famous athlete, musician, actor, or someone else well-known. The opportunity doesn't come along very often for people to come face-to-face with their heroes. It usually only happens at a special event and that's not even always guaranteed. If you enjoy meeting movie stars, then you're definitely going to want to attend the Fan Expo in Chicago.

I started collecting autographs as a kid. They were mostly professional athletes from the Chicago teams including the Bears, Cubs, White Sox, Bulls, and Blackhawks. Later on, I started getting signed memorabilia from my favorite bands.
