THE Canadian National Exhibition@CNE Grounds-Aug.17th-Sept. 3rd,2018
A picket line of strikers, some inclement weather and heavy traffic jams didn’t hamper the 140th edition of the CNE, from Aug.17th-Sept. 3rd.
It was the 69th years of aerial stunts on Labour Day weekend, from September 2 to 4 with the Canadian International Air Show. The latest in aviation technology to acrobatics of Canada’s own Snowbirds, the annual end of the CNE air show was a fan favourite, so bringing your ear plugs was a must, it got real loud.
The Ex is known for some really unique fast food trends. This year’s Ex features a $100 burger covered in 24-karat gold. The burger included a five-ounce patty with maple bacon, peameal bacon, cheddar, onion rings, jalapenos, lettuce, tomato and chipotle mayo in an edible gold bun.
Some of the great offerings at The Food Building included: cotton candy-and-ice cream burritos, deep-fried Ferrero Rocher chocolates and a gold-covered ice cream bar.
Some of the great acts appearing at The Bandshell included: Dennis DeYoung-ex Lead Singer Of Styx, Nancy Wilson of Heart, Kansas, Big Sugar, The Trews, Moist and Blood/Sweat&Tears.
We would like to thank Holmes PR for the invitation to the 140th edition of the CNE. We look forward to the CNE 2019 and the 141st edition.
