It wasn't a great day ... it was a cloudy and a bit chilly. It was too windy for the Human Cannonball and the Flying Canucks. Here are some of the midway and rides ...
Our Armed Forces has a large display. We signed the poster to show our appreciation of their efforts.

There were butter sculptures in the Automotive Building.
There was lots of livestock in the Automotive building (cows, chickens, turkey, sheep, lamb, pigs, etc.). Here are some two week old piglets.
We checked out the casino that is set up during the Ex. We both played Roulette. I was only willing to play with $20 today ... and I lost it. Gord wasn't any luckier.
Then we had a late lunch in the Food Building. Anything you have a craving for is there ... there must be about 100 vendors with everything including burger/fries, Chinese food, Italian food, Thai food, wings, Indian food, Carribean food, etc. We had chicken and fries. The amount of choice was mindblowing!
A fella was balancing rocks in the Direct Energy Centre. Very cool!
We watched a couple sets of a reallly good blues band.
Remember Graham Kerr, the Galloping Gourmet? He did a 45 minute cooking demonstration that was interesting. It was amazing how devoted his fans are.
And like on his show, he brought up members of the audience afterwards to taste what he had made ... steak fried in ketchup and red wine (??!!), microwaved baked potatoes which he then browned, steamed veggies and mango/peach in a cream sauce for dessert.
