Leinie Lodge Bandshell
Home to some of the best free entertainment at the fair - including, my favorite, the nightly Amateur Talent Contest.
Giggles Campfire Grill
Home to the most delicious footlong walleye sandwich you'll ever taste. Take a peek around the back to enjoy some time eating on the picnic tables - there is always room!
Creative Activities Building
Home to the homemade. Take a walk through the maze of quilts, pies, jams, and other homemade goodies. Pretty amazing stuff...
Fine Arts Building
Home to the art. My favorites tend to be the photographs. It's a nice place to take a break from the sun.
4H exhibitor's top 4 list! by Rena
4H exhibitors only! Must have a 4H button to get in, but they are the best thing ever! Livestock exhibitor dance in the swine barn, general project dances in the 4H building. If you are a fellow exhibitor, you can't miss these!
Allergies in the Goat Barn
My friends show goats, and I'm always in the goat barn, but I have allergies. Oh well, its totally worth it!
Education Building, and other Free Stuff
Can't wait to go on another search for all the free stuff we can find with my friends this year! The printout from the state fair website is very helpful! Wait in line for an hour to spin a wheel! I hope I don't leave all my goodies in the 4H dorm again :(
I love washing my chickens at the State fair, and listening to people's comments "wow, look at her, she's washing a chicken!" Yes, chickens have to be clean for shows too.
A 4Her's Favorites! by Rena
This will be my 4th year showing chickens in 4H. I love it so much, and can't wait for this year! Wish me luck! I got Grand Champion Brown Egg Production Pen in 2007.
Hanging out with Friends on the Grounds and in the Dorms
4th year going to the State Fair as a 4Her. I love hanging out with the kids that have been showing longer than I have, and helping out the newcomers. I'm a little disappointed about less dorm space this year, but I got a trip, so it will be amazing! I look forward to the State Fair every year! Hanging out with friends is the best at the fair! And we play spoons in the colosseum... I might see you there, I'll be in the large, screaming group :)
Midnight Stroll to Sweet Martha's Cookies
I love going to get a bucket of cookies with my friend, but she can't go this year, because she tore her acl. But that is a great memory. Best cookies ever!
Barn meals, cheese curds, corn on the cob, Sweet Martha's cookies, milkshakes, Cinnabon, and EVERYTHING ELSE AT THE FAIR! I can not wait!!!
My Favorite Foods by Tom
I love them the most of all. I look forward to the fair because I can get nice, fresh hot ones at few places, except the fair.
There is a stand at the fair that makes fresh fries, which taste amazing.
There is a stand that makes fresh blooming onions and serves them with ranch, so good.
These are always a great fair food and smell even better than they taste. But, they taste great too.
