PNE 2014



PNE is here again. Ticket prices are $13, if you buy them online. Feel free to post discount codes, here.

My wife showed me this handy page that'll give you a schedule of what's happening on the day you go:
The Fair at the PNE - Pacific National Exhibition, Vancouver, British Columbia

There's some cool stuff to see, like the familiar Superdogs, and the marketplace. We're looking forward to checking out the Game of Thrones exhibit, and the Circus in Wonderland.

GF grew up in east van and before I met her never really had much interest in it. But for the last 3 years we've been going at least 2-3 times a year. Great place to just hang out have some drinks and play some games

Dont forget Vancity Day which is Wednesday August 27. Show proof of a Vancity Debit Card or Visa card and it is $5/pp admission for you and a guest from 11:00 am till close (Limit of 2 admission per card and you dont have to pay with said card either).

The only reason I would go is for "Game of Thrones : The Exibition". That or maybe Joan Jett or Glass Tiger

One more thing for those who are going to take advantage of free admission day....... you can only get the hand stamp after 1 pm when the two hour free admission window is over. In previous years, free admission was all morning. From 9:00 am till noon, IIRC. You could get hand stamped at any time. Before any of that, free admission day was just that, free all day long.

I heard free admission is from 11am - 1pm. They'll only start giving out stamps after 1pm for re-entry. You can come and go as you please from 11am-1pm.

My sister was at PNE on Sunday and said there was some guy selling this "puzzle game" in the "market place" area.
The deal was that if you can solve it in under 5 mins, you get the game for free.

His catch phrase was "Want to embarrass yourself?? It's free!"

She said her group of friends were given the opportunity to try it out, but the guy was taunting them and saying sexist things like
"don't bother, girls won't ever solve it. Go back to painting your nails". and overall, being a douche.
Maybe the specific salesperson? Maybe their style of marketing?

I obviously wasn't there, but just curious did any one else stumble upon this.
I'm curious what kind of puzzle game this was. lol

GoT was free. We walked in at 1PM and the line to get a free ticket was like 3 blocks long. When we left around 3PM, there wasn't a line and we got a ticket that had an assigned time (eg. valid after 8PM). I guess they do this to stagger the line and it's not too packed.

We got back at 9PM and lined up for another hour to go into the exhibit.

The exhibit was worth it IMO if you're actually a fan of the show. You get to go on this simulator where it looks like you're looking down at the wall and you get to sit on a replica of the throne. They also have lots of costumes, video displays and replicas of weapons from the show. Oh, and a lil gift shop at the end.
