Haven't been to the CNE in more than a decade. Has anything changed? Is there anythng new?

They should change the name from CNE to CLF - Canada's Largest Flea market. I skipped the CNE for a number of years and went back year before last - what a waste. There actually used to be some interesting exhibits there, now it basically consists of the midway, casino, food building, and of course, the "flea market". Let me put it this way, when they advertise a "feature" for the year as deep fried Coke/Mars bars/whatever, you know they're getting desperate...

Best food last year was the "Fried Onion" & "Pulled Pork Sandwich" hands down! It's still tradition to go to "The EX" every year, just now we take our kids!

Mighty expensive however, but every year we help fellow RFD'ers with a corporate code to make the pain a little easier....especially for younger families!

this year they're featuring bacon in many delicious forms.


Deep fried bacon covered hotdogs are coming to Toronto. Yes, the CNE announced the new food items available this year and bacon looks to be the star attraction. While deep fried Mars bars, butter and donut cheeseburgers will all make return appearances in 2012, it's the trendy bacon that hopes to eclipse them all with the aforementioned hotdog, bacon and nutella and Jack Daniels bacon sandwiches, bacon parfait, bacon sundae, candied bacon and bacon popcorn all expected to grease CNE-goers stomachs.

I don't get it..1/2 price admission for $8 ? Or is that supposed to say $4? Because I don't think the CNE (just ground enterance) ever cost $16 ?

I remember getting in on opening day for 1$. For the amount of money I'll end up spending inside, entrance should always be 5$. Screw this.
