November 2014 - Toronto ON



Last week we went to the Royal Agricultural Fair. I posted some food pictures here.




The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair, colloquially called The Royal, is an annual fall fair which takes place over two weeks in November. Inaugurated in 1922 and originally housed in the Coliseum, on the grounds of Exhibition Place, the event has expanded to also take up the Direct Energy Centre and remains an important exhibit for livestock breeders.

  6. I love the butter sculptures too. The photo of all those udders fit to burst made me squirm! I've never seen a deformed vegetable section at a show like this before. My father could win a deformed carrot prize.

  7. Once upon a time when I was a reporter a photographer and I used to trek round local ag shows - but I don't remember ever seeing butter sculptures! Wonder if they have to work at a certain sculpture so it doesn't melt. Had computer problems, so my Snapshot was very late this week http://chriscross53.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/mushroomy-things.html
