A colourful ceremonial procession today will launch the 136th year of the Canadian National Exhibition.

The official ceremony takes place in front of the historic Princes' Gates in Toronto. C-N-E officials say Toronto Mayor Rob Ford will be among the guests for the opening ceremonies

This year's event will commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the First World War. Participants in a procession are to include First world War re-enactors and the band of the Royal Regiment of Canada

The C-N-E Grounds were used as a military camp from 1914 to 1916.

Among the new over-the-top food offerings at this year's fair will be butter coffee, liquid nitrogen sorbets, and chocolate fried chicken.

The EX runs until September 1.

    Ottawa used to have the, " Super Ex ", a tradition that lasted more than 120 years, until the city clowncil morons took it away. It's been gone for over 7 years now and these idiots have yet to come up with a start-up plan ! But, then again, there is very little intelligent life in this toilet bowl of a city !
