THE STARTING 11: Toronto FC related CNE attractions

It's that wacky time of year again around BMO Field. Thousands come and go, there's screaming, laughing and crying, all while countless clowns and freakshows entertain for peanuts. No, it's not the MLS Transfer Window - it's the Canadian National Exhibition. Toronto's annual fair to celebrate and showcase the best in fried dough technology, the finest in men's leather belts, Sha Na Na cover bands and amusements "assembled" by some of North America's finest carnies. With Toronto FC being a permanent resident on the Exhibition Grounds, and with the club celebrating its fifth season, it was only appropriate that The Reds would be represented during the CNE's fortnight of frivolity. Grab your tickets and join TFC as they celebrate "5 Years of Rebuilding" with these Ex amusements...

  1. Don't forget the "De Guzman DP Joyride" that charges ten times the price of any other amusement park ride but turns out to be a simple merry go round you can get at any small town fall fair or carnival. Regardless, a significant number of fans willingly fork out the dough and remain convinced that ride is worth every cent!
