A quarter doesn't get you much these days, but if you're at The CNE and your feet are tired, you can drop 25 cents into the Footsie-Wootsie machine and get some relief.

After a long day of meandering, playing games, eating funnel cakes and riding the rides, you'll be glad to take heed the words on the rows of shiny, plastic seats that implore you to "RELAX, REJUVENATE, REVIVE."

Take a load off and give yourself a footgasm. It's the best 25 cents you can spend at The Ex.

These rows of foot massagers are scattered throughout the exhibition grounds. Which is a good thing. So no matter where you are, you're probably not far from a good foot massage.

Sitting on the Footsie-Wootsie machine is like resting your feet on a huge vibrator. It tingles and tickles as it releases tension and takes your mind off the crowds, the smells and the hustle-and-bustle that can easily exhaust and overwhelm.

Want to try this at home? For just $1595 (USD) you can have your very own Personal Foot Massager. At that price, I could use the Footie-Wootsie at The Ex 6,380 times.

Still considering a day at the CNE? Keep your eyes in the sky for The 59th Annual Canadian International Air Show (CIAS) which is sure to blast our ears and scare the birds today, tomorrow and Monday.

The CIAS is probably the closest you can get to a good air show in Toronto and boasts to be among the best air shows in North America.
