Street Style: The CNE

By Jean Grant| Photography by Kayla Rocca

The city’s annual carnival is back, transforming Exhibition Place into a fun- and food-filled fairground for a fortnight. On opening weekend, the CNE grounds were packed with grownups indulging their inner children by gorging on rainbow-hued grilled cheeses, riding the Ferris wheel and vying for large plush toys (the poop emoji was a popular choice). Here, a few of the most playful, carnival-appropriate outfits—poop emojis included:
