The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, Toronto, ON

Gord and I went to The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair (The Royal) today.  It's at Exhibition Place from today 'til November 13.  The first show opened in November 1922.

The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair takes place every November in the City of Toronto. Come celebrate the best in agriculture, local food, and equestrian competitions from across the country. Whether you're a visitor or an exhibitor, The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair is jam-packed with home-grown fun and the best in local food and animal entertainment.

The Royal is the largest combined indoor agricultural fair and international equestrian competition in the world. It is where Canadian and international breeders, growers and exhibitors are declared champions and where hundreds of thousands of attendees come to learn, compete, shop and have a great time with friends and family.

There is something for everyone!

There is lots of shopping including horse supplies, clothing, hats, boots, jewelry, sweets, cooking supplies, soaps, etc.
