Get a shake from the Kiwanis' stand and sit by the 4H building
my must haves/see by Megan Warn
They are as amazing as the funny/silly man who owns the cart. Pickle dogs are a yummy piece of pastrami with cream cheese smeared all over it and a pickle on top, rolled up for easy consumption! I eat three every time I go to the fair.
strawberries and cream
that's it, just whole berries and cool whip. I could get it at home but it tastes better with a spork! Don't forget to whip a sporkfull at your sister!
cute cute piglets and chicks and cows, sheep and whatever else is entering the world that day. need I say more? oh! sometimes you get to touch them! don't forget to sanitize!
Keep and eye out for lost flip flops on the tops of buildings and don't forget to smooch your sweetheart half way though!
simply the best by Nichole S
outside the DNR building they make a huge sculpture out of trash from the Mississippi River. Then you can do a "hunt" to find a list of items included in it.
Annual Art Show
Go the the Fine Arts building and see the whole show. Be sure you don't miss a single piece - that's how we do it!
The Pet Center has K-9 officers and their dogs from the St Paul police department doing demonstrations. It's on the far north side of the fair grounds so prepare for a walk.
Go to the pig barn to see the heaviest pig at the fair. These guys are soooo big! It's quite a sight.
