CNE Mania

We spent 12.5 hours at the Canadian National Exhibition yesterday … OMG, so much fun! For those of you that don’t know, the CNE is a tradition in Toronto … around since 1879. I remember being just a wee kid and visiting the CNE and most Torontonians – I would argue – revisit it each summer throughout their lives. Here, in pictures, is some of what we did and saw:

1) saw funky Sony technology; 2) ate Tiny Tom’s; 3) straddled things hehe


4) saw the world’s longest parade; 5) G went down; 6) I went up

7) visited the Barbie Museum; 8) saw the world’s ugliest chair; 9) met Galloping Gourment, Graham Kerr


10) saw a man balance a rock …; 11) and succeed; 12) me as a midget

13) went ‘baaaahhhh’; 14) and ‘moooooo’; 15) and ‘cluck’

16) saw the SuperDogs show; 17) found a reason never to visit Blackstock, Ontario; 18) went up on the ferriswheel

19) rode “Crazy Mouse” at 10am; 20) and again at 10pm; 21) saw the CNE at night

22, 23, 24) toured the Chinese Lantren Festival … one word: AMAZING!


25) pandas; 26) a dragon at Ontario Place; 27) this dragon is made entirely of porcelain teacups and saucers … I’m not kidding!

28) the entrance gate

29) nighty-night … I’m sleepy

    HAHAHA! 17). is so bitchy great! The fair is like a mini-Epcot…with farm animals and midget mirrors. I LOVE the pandas….totally speaks to my unhealthy teddy bear fetish. If i had a front lawn, those lighted pandas would be there.
