Been to the Ex yet?
An end of summer tradition since 1879… although a lot has changed since then!

below: Part of the midway this year. Rides, games and food! … oh, and people!
Games of skill
And games of chance (gambling, if you will)
Rides that turn you upside down,
make you scream,
swing you around,
jostle you around,
and let you laugh with friends.
below: And, hey look, the pink and blue ride in the background, that’s a tilt-a-whirl ride. It’s a bit different from the 1937 version pictured above but the concept is still the same.
Food… deep fried almost anything you want!
The Ex… The CNE… call it what you will.
