The CNE opens tomorrow, and it always brings back a ton of memories.
I worked at the CNE for three summers as a game booth attendant, from 1989-1991. That gave me a unique perspective. If you want to revisit my many Canadian National Exhibition memories, visit my CNE page where I've shared several stories from these years working the midway.
Here are some of the highlights:
- Conklin Carnies Save My Life
- What a Wonderful World
- The Legend of Ardo
- Risking My Life On Black Monday
- Bands at the Grandstand
- Observing the Conklin Carnies
- In Defense of Carnies
You'll never look at a carnie the same way again.
If you have a Canadian National Exhibition memory you'd like to share, I'd love to read it below.
