Red Friday at The EX means all CNE attendees should wear red in support
TORONTO, Aug. 23 /CNW/ - This Friday, August 24 at 2:00 p.m. the Canadian
National Exhibition will mount the city's greatest-ever show of support for
Canada's military at the Canadian Forces Display on the CNE grounds.
CNE "Red Friday" encourages all GTA residents coming to The EX this
Friday to wear "anything red" - in their own personal gesture backing Canada's
troops stationed worldwide.
The goal of the CNE initiative is to have thousands of people present at
this first-ever CNE event. Originally launched by wives of Canadian troops in

of the Canadian Forces and their families. Similar initiatives have been
launched across Canada and this is expected to be Toronto's largest ever.
The Canadian Forces Display at the CNE is located just inside the
Princes' Gates and features everything from boats to tanks to aircraft.
Thousands have already visited the exhibit, the largest mounted by the
Canadian Forces at the CNE. A red sea of support is expected to flood the
southeast quadrant of The EX at 2:00 this Friday, just inside the Princes'
