IN PRAISE OF THE PNE

Where Vancouver - - HERE & NOW - —SHERI RAD­FORD

AUG 20-SEP 5 Sum­mer just isn't com­plete with­out a visit to The Fair at the PNE (page 72), an an­nual tra­di­tion that started way back in 1910. Lo­cals and vis­i­tors alike can't re­sist the ex­hibits, grav­ity-de­fy­ing rides and out­door concerts each night, in­clud­ing Cul­ture Club (Aug. 28) and The Mon­kees (Sep. 4). Don't miss Un­be­liev­able, a world-class mag­i­cal show­case; the in­ter­ac­tive An­gry Birds Uni­verse, with its zi­pline, laser maze and climb­ing wall; the al­ways pop­u­lar Su­perDogs, per­form­ing ca­nine stunts ga­lore; and The Beast, a screa­min­duc­ing ride with speed, height and both side-to-side and cir­cu­lar mo­tion. Word to the wise: wait un­til af­ter rid­ing it be­fore try­ing a deep-fried Mars bar.
