The End of Summer is Here #letsgototheex

The end of summer is truly here.  Every year, at this time, I always do the same thing … it’s routine, it’s tradition.  I always bid summer adieu with a visit to the Ex.  This year, it ends on September 7th.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

Since I always sneak in a few drinks at the end of the day, I take the trust-worthy TTC to the Canadian National Exhibition.  Note:  If you are attending the CNE this weekend, don’t forgot to bring a hat, sunscreen and lots of water to drink.  There are various water refill stations located around the grounds.

If you’ve never been to the Ex before, I think you shouldn’t put it off any longer.  There’s so much to see, do, and experience there! [http://theex.com] Personally, I’m not a ‘ride person’ so I avoid the Midway.  I tend to visit all the indoor exhibits:  butter sculpting, sand sculpting, topiary, the farm, and shopping! I usually spend an entire day … yes, from open to close.  I ensure I try a different food each year, and I usually end up purchasing much more than I expect to!    That’s just how it is; it’s part of the experience and part of the tradition.  By the end of the day, I’m exhausted.  That means it’s time to visit the bandshell and enjoy a beverage or two.

  1. I’ve never been as I’m always on the West Coast but I’m with you, I’m not a ride girl! I’d love to see the butter sculpting!

  2. I would love to go, I’m with you about the rides, I too avoid the midway, I love walking through the buildings and seeing what everyone has to offer, and the new foods to try, for me it’s like a great big farmers market with just about anything you want to purchase, can’t wait for the Norfolk County Fair!!
