Hours before the New Kids on the Block took the stage at the TD Garden, they were in Medford to hang with Amanda Hellen, who won Mix 104.1’s “New Kids On Your Block’’ contest, which earned one fan an afternoon party with the Boston boy band during the local run of its “Package’’ tour. Hellen shared the party with her twin, Meredith Dziuba, who hosted the festivities because she has a bigger place. The sisters turn 30 in a month and have a long history with the New Kids. “It was our first concert when we were 6,’’ Hellen said, sounding a bit dazed after her visit with the Kids had ended on Sunday. Hellen said that the guys took a tour of Dziuba’s home and enjoyed a cake made by her friend who owns BaylaBoo Cake Boutique in Everett. They were chatty and nice. They took pictures in the garage. “Jordan Knight rubbed my shoulders,’’ Hellen said, her voice shaky. “I can’t even put it into words. My life is downhill from here because this is the best day of my life.’’
