For the younger carnival-goers, Kiddieland offers the ideal place for young children over the age of two to enjoy a number of brightly coloured rides and places to play. From Choo Choo Charlie to the Super Slide, there are many opportunities to enjoy a day at the carnival.

The food selections are also endless, but some of the most popular treats include cinnamon mini donuts, pretzels, snow cones, cotton candy and sugary Slurpees.

The premier is hinting at a twin-tunnel plan. Is that what you'd like to see for the George Massey crossing?
