CNE 2013 & The Recycled Orchestra

Yesterday, we went to the Canadian National Exhibition (the CNE). It happens every summer. When it first started they used to show 'new inventions' like the telephone or the lightbulb!
Now, they have rides, games, performances and sales.

Here are a couple pictures from the Ferris Wheel. 

We also went on the chair lift.

It was Warriors Day and they had a Veterans Parade. There was a CBC Weather Reporter who interviewed a soldier right by the tank.

I got to sit in the cockpit of a fighter jet!

This was all made out of origami!

Metrolinx had a set up of the new Eglinton Crosstown Tram.
It felt cramped inside the passenger area.

I got to sit in the cab.

The highlight of my trip was seeing the Recycled Orchestra perform! I did a blog post about them before. They are from Paraguay and they play instruments made from trash found in a landfill.
They played songs like "Imagine" and the Pink Panther Theme. They were good!

Here's a short video of one of the songs they did.
