Every year for as long as I could remember, my parents would take me and my sisters to the CNE which was really fun and exciting - but we never went on any of the rides (which is understandable because you never know... those things are dangerous and all).
Eventually we stopped going every year because prices were going up and the booths started to have just the same things over and over each year. It's been about 4 or 5 years since I last went and so this year in a matter of 30 minutes I decided to go and was out the door on the streetcar down to the EX.

for some reason I just really like this picture

By the time I got down there, it was already pretty dark out. (I was aiming to try and get down there for golden hour because I love when the sun is just setting but lights are already on). As pretty as it was, it was actually kind of overwhelming with all the lights and people everyyywhere. Long story short - I ended up going on the rides first and because of the long lines my the time I was done the pavilions were closed. Bad timing on my part. I figured it was whatever because 1. I only paid $6 (?) to get in, and 2. I got to go on two of the rides. RIDES!!! It was
nice to just wander around and take things in before heading home. All in all a fun night :)
