I love the Exhibition, or the Ex, as the annual fair here in Saskatoon is called. It’s such a lovely mix of trashy and romantic. We used to live much closer to Prairieland Park, where the Ex is held – close enough to get the parking passes that you need to park on nearby residential streets. Also close enough to watch the nightly fireworks display from the front porch. We could walk over in the evening, and since I was working at the racetrack that summer, I had an all-access pass. This summer was the year for rides, so I tried out the Zipper. I think I will be content with the swings next year.
We still live on the south side of Saskatoon, but we aren’t close enough to see the fireworks any more.
