Food vendors, mini putt golf, ride cars, a kids play village, and t-ball baseball are some of the things expo attendees can take part in, according to Family Shows Canada, the event’s organizer.

Several carnival rides have also taken up shop along Dufferin Avenue between Wellington Street and Clarence Street.

Event organizers say an all-day carnival ride bracelet costs $20, and parents can ride for free if their kids have a bracelet and are 13-years-old or younger.
