The Canadian National Exhibit -- also known as the CNE or The Ex -- opens its doors on Friday, August 17. To celebrate, general admission is $8, 50% off the regular price. Alternatively, If you have plans to go any other day, you can buy discounted tickets online or at Mac's Convenience. When purchased in advance, admission is $12 and a Ride All Day pass plus admission is $36. The regular price for a Ride All Day pass is $52 so the savings are pretty substantial. These Early Bird prices expire when The Ex opens, though, so you've only got until August 17 to take part.
The CNE is off Princes' Boulevard in Toronto and runs from August 17 to September 3 this year. There is a wide variety of attractions & shows and concerts and entertainment as well as more than 50 rides, dozens of food vendors and lots of shopping opportunities.
