Let’s Go to the Ex…Win Tickets!

The Canadian National Exhibition opens this Friday, August 17th until September 3rd! Going to this local fair is a yearly tradition for me. Here are some of my highlights for the 2012 CNE!

The Sky Ride

As a lover of the Ferris wheel, I’m really excited for the new Sky Ride! The Sky Ride is new for 2012 and is 40 feet above the ground. It carries you across the CNE grounds and kinda looks like a ski lift. You can ride it for free with a Play All Day pass or buy individual tickets.

Food at the Ex!

The Toronto Star Food Building is always a huge draw. So many places to eat, so many different cultures all in one building. This year comes with some new surprises. You can try deep-fried apple fritters, Dutch Krokets (a fried roll with mashed potatoes and beef with rice or noodles, coated in breadcrumbs and deep-fried), and finish off with some new cupcakes from Sweetness bakery.

Last but not least….The weekend of August 24 to 26, the CNE will host a huge food truck rally just inside the historic Princes’ Gates. The Food Truck Rally will feature Food Trucks including: Blue Donkey Streetery, Buster’s Sea Cove, Canuk Pizza Truck, Fidel Gastro, Food Dudes, Gourmet B1tches, Hank Daddy’s Barbeque, Gourmet Gringos, Hogtown Smoke, Mike’s Dog House, Per Se Mobile, Pretty Sweet, Rollin’ on the River, Roman Chariot, Stuft, Sweetness Bakery, Texas Tornado, The Urban Smoke, Tiny Toms.

Of course, there are many more things to do at the Ex. Catch a musical performance, nab a deal from the various buildings or win a prize from a games booth. Thanks to the CNE, I’m giving you the chance to win a pair of tickets to the Ex! All you have to do is follow the instructions below, and enter before Friday August 10th.

    My favourite thing to do at the EX is visit the food building. I love trying the new items up on offer as well as visiting old favourites. It simply is not a visit to the EX until I’ve enjoyed my annual beavertail!

    Love trying new foods at the Food Building & the International area. The Superdogs show is one of my faves, and I hope they will return this year.

    Eat the food! Nicole, I totally agree about the Beavertails, especially since the one at Ontario Place is closed.

    The food building is on the top of the list. I like a few games as well. Whack-a-Mole anyone? XD
