It has to be the stand outside the Food Building. Its fried dough with powder suger. The food that can not be shared. It is that good.
From Del Sol. The best tacos at the Fair!
From the Food Building. Fish on a stick, what more can I say.
A tradition! Get a great spot by judging, get something from the food building, and people watch before the parade. I love the Bull at the end and always wave to the street cleaner.

Category:Attractions & Exhibits
Must see the 4-H members' exhibits from around the state, watch the free entertainment and demonstrations done by the 4-Hers.
Ye Old Mill
Must take a boat ride with my family to relax, cool off and enjoy the quiet of the dark tunnels on this old nostalgic ride.
Must see the giant boar in the swine barn and be amazed at how much it ate to grow that large.
Must stop and get a free honey sample in the Horticulture building. Then pick up some honey sticks 5/$1 to take home. My kids love them!

Bacon on a Stick
The best food at the fair. I know this because I think about it year-round and it's the first place I stop to get food.
Sweet Martha's Cookies and a Glass of Milk
Okay technically that would be two things but cookies and milk have to be together like peanut butter and jelly, cake and frosting. That's just how it is. I grab a big ole heaping bucket, eat a couple so they don't topple off, then head down to the Milk Stand and grab a glass of milk. (I refill it a couple of times for free.)
Corn on the Cob
Can't top this Minnesota staple. Sweet succulent and buttery with a hint of salt. That's all I need.
El Sol Burrito
Gotta have it. Can't live without it. Can't wait to eat one. Best Burrito at the fair.

Sunday Before The Fair Starts
If you compete in baking, this is your day. Get there early, try to be first, but the same 2 ladies always beat me there. Somehow it is always chilly that morning, as we wait outside Creative Activities Building for the door to open. Oooh and aaah at what others have baked, talk about who won what last year. Next few days will be waiting to see if winners are up on website - did I win a ribbon? Excitement building because the FAIR is just a few days away.
Cheese curds -my all-time favorite, but so many other favorites too- diet is out the window for the duration. Corn fritters. Fudge puppy. Roasted corn. Cream puffs. Sweet Martha’s. Milkshakes. French Fries. Minnekabob. By the time I finish my old favorites, it's hard to think to try something new.
The fair after dark is magical- lights of the midway, sounds of music, great people watching - seems like the strangest people come out after dark. Even though it's crowded, it's always a happy crowd.
Which do I like best? Sheep? Goats? Ducks? Chickens? Rabbits? Love the horse shows, especially when the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are here.
