Let’s Go To the Ex!:

Sensory Overload

“Going to the fair” each year has been a Toronto tradition since the late 1870s. The exhibit relives the visitor experience of the Midway Plaisance of the Canadian National Exhibition. It will take you from the anticipation of lining up for your first ride of the season to the kaleidoscopic sounds, tastes, smells and views of the Ex.
