    "The board says they cancelled this year's fair for several reasons, including the redevelopment of Lansdowne Park and the cost of operating at a temporary location."

    Ahhh... fond memories of going to the SuperEx in the summer time...

    On the plus side, anyone with kids can save themselves $500 by not visiting the Ex once this summer.

    It's a shame though, I went to the Ex a lot as a kid and really enjoyed it (when I wasn't paying for it).

    It's one year. If it's gone for good I'd be sad but I personally haven't gone for years and my kids are too young to really enjoy it anyway.

    The last time I went, I was twelve and threw up all over myself.

    The funny thing is, I probably would've taken my kid there this year...too bad. I guess I'll save myself some dough...and possibly a shirt.
