The Maritime Midway gets going this afternoon starting at 4 pm and will be open Wednesday through Saturday from 12 noon to 11:30 pm. Every day is Bracelet Day! Enjoy as many rides as you want for one price. A different coloured bracelet will be used each day and is only good for that day.

The Market at the Ex offered free table space to anyone wishing to sell or display their crafts or products so there’s sure to be plenty of wares to browse and buy. Stop in each day to fill out your ballot for a FREE Draw! A New Draw will take place each day at 6 pm! Take a break from the heat in an air-conditioned building!

If you’re parched or hungry during your visit to the Ex, visit Nana’s Kitchen. Nana’s will be open daily from 10 am to 10 pm offering great food in air-conditioned comfort.
