The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE or the Ex for short), officially opens on Aug. 15 in Toronto.
>> the not-so scary rides
>> Eating all kinds of weird, fatty and fried foods in the Food Building
>> the classic carnival stuff
>> go to TINY TOM Donuts first
>> the $1 spaghetti
>> for the crapola: All the random crap and cheap deals you find during the warehouse sales.
>> the free concerts with names you may not have heard of
>> go to the “Guess your age and weight” booth right outside one of the entrances to the food building at the Canadian National Exhibition.
>> the gasp-worthy acrobatics
>> the not-so-glamorous casinos that still manage to take all your money
>> Or the booths where you think you’re saving money by betting $1
>> for all the free samples you get walking around
>> see how pretty everything looks at night
>> working at the Ex was probably one of your first jobs … or your next job
>> the animals are entertaining (dog show, cat show, the farm)
>> for getting all kinds of coupons with your admission ticket
>> Knowing that when the CNE wraps up, you’ve had an awesome summer.
And, … back to real life.
