If anyone planning on taking their young kid(s) and planning on using tickets, I bought the 30tickets/$45 and have 16 left over, I'll dump them for 16 bucks, the little twins got scared after a few rides and they only thing they wanted to do was the slide and the LG working it let us go on so many times without using tickets. Not planning on going back they retired the bb rifle shoot out the star game it was the only thing I win stuff on regularly

Don't forget......... free parking from 6:00 pm on Hastings Street. Just wait at gas station till 2 minutes before and then head out. Last time I went, two cars were parked with their hazard lights on.

Also, the block before Renfrew is pretty much open and IMHO, better.

In the morning, you can find parking up to 10:00 AM. You just have to remember to leave before 3:00 pm (rush hour).

Last week, I was picking up my son, but got there early. Found a bit of a gap between two cars. I just parked my little Smart EV perpendicular in the gap. People were like, holy shit, is he really going to park like that?

I guess in Vancouver, you can't like in other cities. I just had to wait for 10 to 15 minutes. The EV is as long as an F-150 is wide, lol.

You talking about the doughnuts on a stick? If so, I had the red velvet with real cream cheese glaze and it is very good. The deep fried coffee is pretty good, too. As a diabetic, I almost went into a coma after having two pieces, LOL.

Well, that's it till next year. Overall, it was a good experience. I'm glad they're keeping the PNE going. It brings people together - a good local tradition.

I guess I didn't win the PNE house......... or a car.

Holy shit........... you're right. My bad. Well, if you win the house, make sure to hold an RS mini meat. I'll bring the RS Holy Grill and Frip will bring his sausage.

C'mon, there's more than one car available............... we can share the hopes on that one, at least.
