The show moved this year to the Direct Energy Building on the CNE Grounds. For the first time the show was on one floor. Those beautiful Ontario Flower Grower displays were a beautiful sight and formed a nice transition into the Marketplace. While the hall is still a 'hall' with that industrial sense of concrete, exposed ceiling structures, and industrial style lighting, it seemed a great improvement. It was easier to get to and get in and out of. The entrance is architecturally wonderful and enjoys the bright sunshine and waterfront views. Parking was plain easy and there were street cars and the GO station right nearby. In fact, I walked through the underpass to Atlantic Avenue, and made my way to Mildred Pierce's Temple Kitchen and had a birthday celebration with Brian, my brother.
In terms of the show, the show stopper for me was the Urchin sculpture display. Here's my interpretation.
