Just curious if anyother CHers attended this year. This was my first year going as it was in Laval and I am a Lavaller.

For me it was a big disappointment. The site was incredibly dusty and there was a complete lack of seating and only one small covered seating area. The food was also not so great. I was expecting more creative food and at a more reasonal price. Entrance already was 8$ pp and the average small bite from the exhibitors was 4$. The vendor selling the alligator was charging 6$ for a TINY little cup. And the emu crepe was a total disaster in my opinion. It was spiced with a tourtiere mix I think and the meat was shredded to basically a powder. A cheese vendor under the tent couldn't even tell me what cheeses they were serving! The only thing I somewhat enjoyed was the balkan burger from Balkani. I read another thread a while ago saying that Balkan burgers are the best so I was happy to try one without making the trip to the island.

As mentioned this was my first time there. Were the previous years the same?
