The Canadian National Exhibition grounds are so richly steeped in history that there are spirits that dwell there who like to come out and play and work.



When one thinks of Toronto's Canadian National Exhibition, memories of bright lights, cotton candy, the rush of people, and the excitement of rides spring to mind. But when the lights go down and the people head home, the fairground takes on a life of its own. The spirits that dwell there from the exhibition's long history come out to play and work, even to scare the occasional employee.

The grounds and buildings of the CNE are so richly steeped in history that they are a magnificent storehouse of energy. This area has been in continuous use since before the 18th century, starting with Fort Rouille in 1750 and Fort York in 1793. From murders to accidents, it is no surprise that Exhibition Place is haunted. There are many reasons for spirits to dwell in that site, but it may be the joy and excitement that tempts them to linger. These spirits carried the pride and accomplishment of being part of something grand, something that will live on beyond them. That's the true spirit of the Canadian National Exhibition.
