Photo Diary & OOTD: Canadian National Exhibition 2014

August 29, 2014

Canadian National Exhibition, aka CNE or the Ex, has been a Toronto tradition for over a century.  Many Canadians or even tourist will come to this annual 18-day fair for the shows, exhibits, food, casino and so on.  This year, for some reason, the man was very excited to go to the Ex, so we walked all the way to the venue and spend the evening there last night.  This is our photo diary... or better known as Rica's food diary...  I also included my OOTD here, CNE style :).  Hope you enjoy!

Of course, Rica has to take a pic with the pink bench

Time to go home...

I had a great time at the Ex this year... Didn't get to go into the vendors hall at Direct Energy Centre though... oh well, I will go next year.  Also, going after work on a Thursday was the best idea, because we only had to pay $6 each for admission :D... No wonder it was packed lol.  If you still haven't been this year, you still have tomorrow until September 1!  Have fun!

Until next time,
