CNE memories: Send us your stories for free tickets contest
The Civic Holiday weekend is the tipping point of summer.
And when the CNE starts Aug. 15, that means it’s pretty well over.
Who remembers Stan Taylor handing out free little blue or yellow school passes at the end of June to go to the Ex?
Or the great Grandstand and Band Shell shows with Bob Hope and The Three Stooges?
Who can forget all the free food samples at the Food Building, the future gizmos in the Better Living Building or the Shell Tower where you met if you got lost?
And, of course, the fabulous Midway – with the roller coasters and games and sideshows.
It was a feast for all – especially those living in the country who looked forward to a long day of fun and Ex-citement.
Tell us about your memories of the Ex.
