30 end of summer memories from the 2013 CNE

The end of the CNE, complete its deafening jets tearing across the sky, always marks the unofficial conclusion of summer in Toronto. Post-Ex, the night air gets a little cool, kids go back to school, and the weight of existential dread drowns us all. Um, never mind about that last bit. But, about the Ex. What a year it was. With a PR crisis related to the cronut burger, a spiffy new zip line, and a host of time-honoured traditions that make the fair an exercise in ongoing nostalgia, it makes it difficult to summarize the event in one go. Thankfully, we have the help of our followers, who by tagging their Ex photos with #cneblogto, have contributed to a wonderful visual overview of this year's event. Below are 30 highlights from the 2013 CNE.
