    Background: The Canadian National Exhibition, held annually in Toronto during the last two weeks in August and the first week in September, gets a two-day extension this year - the result of the increasing millions of visitors.

    This year it is estimated that nearly three million visitors will throng through the park and buildings.

    Claimed as the biggest fair in the world, the Government building and the International Building housing displays from all parts of the world are two of the chief attractions on the 350-acre site.

    Displays include precision-made clocks and watches from Germany, china from Britain, typewriters from Italy, chocolates and candy from Holland, cars from France, and a pilotless jet plane, the Jinkivik, from Australia.

    Started in 1879, the exhibition looks like going on for a long time.
