Memories of the CNE & a Guinness World Record Attempt with Kinder Surprise on Saturday! #kindersmiles

When I was a kid we used to go to the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) every year as a family. We would be there when it opened and stay until it closed. I have lots of fun summer memories from spending the day there.

For this post I asked my mom to dig up a few "vintage" photos from her albums and scan them for me :) Below are my dad, myself, and my younger sister Hilary.

I loved days like this when my dad didn't have to work and our whole family was together, having fun!

To this day, I cannot forget "the balls"! I LOVED them! My mom tells me how sad it was the year that I was considered too old to go in the ball pit and how disappointed I was.

In the photos below, I am 2 years old in the left photo and 11 years old in the right one.

I know that in those days Ontario Place was open and was a big part of our visits but right now it's closed while they do some updates (I hope we get to go and see it when it's finished!)  I am excited to go back to the "Ex" this year (I haven't been since I was a teenager) and share some of the fun with my girls!

If you're planning to attend the CNE this weekend, I have some exciting news for you! Kinder Canada is going to be there with their fun interactive photo and video KINDER® Smile Booth and play area in the Kid’s World to capture moments of joy between parents and kids...

...but that's not all! In celebration of Kinder's 40th anniversary, they're also inviting everyone who can be there to join them for an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most people unwrapping chocolate at the same time!

When: Saturday, August 30th
Where: Canadian National Exhibition at Bandshell Park, 210 Princes’ Blvd, Toronto
• 10:20 a.m. – arrive at Bandshell Park near the Kid’s World at the CNE
• 10:40 a.m. – everyone gets a KINDER® egg!
• 11:00 a.m. – official Guinness World Record attempt

We are excited to be going and to be a part of the record breaking attempt- how fun! Maybe we'll see you there :)

  1. Can you be any cuter in these photos? Love them! I wish I could have made it out that day. Free chocolate and breaking records... what's not to love?
