There are few Toronto events more celebrated than the Canadian National Exhibition. The summer staple is one of the oldest festivals. Some people make the pilgrimage to the Ex every summer.
However, when they get there, they often find themselves wondering why they always come back. From the sights, to the sounds, to the smells, there's an awful lot of irritation and annoyance to be found down by the lake in late summer. So, before you cheerily implore all your friends to go to the Ex, perhaps you should first consider these thoughts you probably had the last time you were there.
