Games For Fun - 2019-2022

There are some things that have been lost to time in Toronto: the neon lights that used to line Yonge Street; the folk music spilling out of Yorkville coffee shops; the hope of a middle class. The Canadian National Exhibition is a time warp to the past for me. When I'm weaving through the crowds, hypnotized by the signs, games, rides and lights, I feel like I could be in any decade. For the two and a half short weeks that the CNE is open, people flock to it just as they did in the 50s, the 60s, the 70s. It's still a place where a young person takes someone on a first date. Our city is changing, but for a couple weeks in August we can flock to these bright lights.
