Belleville Tourist Traps

  • aneaglewhensheflies's Profile Photo

    by aneaglewhensheflies Updated Sep 23, 2004

    I really am quite ashamed to admit that our Quinte Exhibition ( Fair) is a REAL RIP-OFF, as far as I'm concerned. It costs too much to even get admittance into the grounds, never mind the cost of the games and rides for Kids,Students and Adults. Our Craft Barns and Livestock Barns are certainly NOT what they used to be-- IN FACT, any smaller towns in the surrounding area would be far more beneficial to you to visit than ours.

    Fun Alternatives: One of our small town fairs in the Quinte Region would be a real HOOT for you to attend as the Picton Fair is awesome as well as Picton's Street Dances.

Belleville Favorites

  • All Joking Aside!!

    I guess I would have to say that my most favourite thing in Belleville would have to depend on the mood I was in at the time. Sometimes I would say THE WATERFRONT & ETHNIC FESTIVAL other times I would have to say A STROLL IN OUR PARKS AND BEAUTIFUL VILLAGE/CITY STREETS.
