So much changes every year in Toronto that it can be hard to form lasting traditions: restaurants close, parks turn into condos and vice-versa. The one thing we Torontonians can count on however, is The Ex.
The CNE, aka The Ex, has become a mainstay in our summer schedule every year. The perfect way to spend the day and by far the cutest date spot in town after the sun goes down, this classic carnival is a massive patch of magic that takes over part of downtown year in and year out. It’s become a bit of an annual tradition for Team RAOP to get dressed up in cute colourful outfits and spend a day shooting, spinning and snacking at The Ex, and despite my busy schedule with Cuba and birthday adventures, this year was no exception.
