One thing I was surprised to discover was a little tent that sold Sally Hansen nail polish for super low prices! I got 7 polishes for $8 which is a great deal, since the Hard as Nails polishes can be up to $4.99 at some stores. I got some fun summer shades and some darker ones for Fall. They may be older colours and collections but really for this price, why wouldn't you scoop a few up?
We didn't go on any rides but we did get on the Express Train that gives a little tour around the CNE. We watched a tightrope show and browsed in the Arts & Crafts Pavilion. And of course we split a funnel cake between the three of us. It was delicious.
The CNE was way more fun that i remember from when I was little. even without spending a ton of cash on rides we had a great time and I am so glad I went. There was so much to look at and we were only there for a few hours. I'm sure with a whole day you could see so much more.
Have you gone to the CNE yet this summer? You only have a short time left so plan a trip and check it out!
