Contrary to popular belief, there are more things to do at the Canadian National Exhibition than eat copious amounts of deep-fried foods. Much went to the CNE this week with the goal of discovering the road less travelled of the fairgrounds. Here are five things you’re missing out on at the CNE.
In the Enercare centre, there are a number of outlet sales that you can shop. The prices are pretty good if you can get past the chaos of warehouse sale shopping. Annual CNE staples include retailers Stitches and Bluenotes. Newer retailers include BCBG, Superdry and Bench, and Designer Shoe Warehouse.
World War I Exhibit
Take a trip back to the past with this collection of original WWI vehicles. You can take photos of the collection of restored vehicles, complete with WWI actors dressed in 1910s garb.
A strangely satisfying exhibit to admire, seeing these giant, intricate sand sculptures never disappoint. Check out the creations from four international teams. If you’re a fan of sculpted things that look like other things, you might also enjoy the butter sculpting exhibit. This year’s theme is celebrities (which, incidentally, calls for butter sculptures of Yoda).
Think of the International Pavilion at the CNE as your high school’s multicultural night festival on steroids. There’s endless booths of vendors from all parts of the world selling imported goods from fabrics to candy. There’s also a stage in the pavilion that hosts different cultural dance performances (as you can see in main blog image at the top).
If the bingo tent isn’t enough excitement for a high roller like you, take your talents to the casino for blackjack, roulette and poker.
The CNE is open until September 7, so be sure to check out these attractions before the summer ends!
