I try to check out the Candian National Exhibition (CNE, The Ex) annually. I went with Richard last year (view parts one, two, three, four and five) and had lots of fun not so much eating artery clogging, break out educing foods, but scoping out the animals, people, vendors, games and everything else that makes The Ex!
This year I went with my family for their $5 after 5 deal, which was totally worth it by the way. It's a great event to close off the summer with, especially with my brother leaving home and starting university. We hopped on the subway train and make our way downtown and arrived at about 6:30pm.
