This year, however, an opportunity presented itself, and now I know what Old Home Week on PEI is!
Last Friday, we dropped a friend off at the airport around 5 p.m., and had several hours to kill before picking up my girlfriend, who was just coming down for the weekend, but on a later flight. So rather than drive all the way back out to the house, Alex and I decided to check out this Old Home Week business and see for ourselves what all the fuss is about.
Turns out it's a bit like the CNE in Toronto, but on a smaller scale.
We also stopped to check out the horse races (but didn't do any betting).
As Alex remarked, we were glad to have gone to check it out, but Old Home Week is one of those things where once is enough.
