Let's Go To The Ex 2016!

By Wendy Kam Marcy

The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) or The Ex opens August 19 to September 5 - a bittersweet reminder that summer is officially coming to an end.

My parents brought me in a bassinet when I was a wee little baby (2 months old!) and it's been my favourite family tradition that I'm now carrying on with my son. I'm particularly excited this year because he is two and a half and over 3ft tall which means he can start going on some of the midway rides!

And of course there is all the wacky carnival food!

The menu will be revealed on August 18 but based on last year's offerings, we can likely expect favourites like the cake poutine and deep fried red velvet oreo cookies chased down with Fran's coffee doughnut milkshake. And obviously, Bacon will be slathered on everything, from funnel cakes to Bacon Nations' bacon wrapped grill cheese and Krispy Kreme infamous burgers... did anyone actually try one of these?!

What are you looking forward to the most at CNE this year?
