Leinie Lodge: Tonic Sol-fa
The longest running act at the State Fair and still one of the best. I make it a point to go to the fair just to see them and schedule my entire day around their performance(s).
Local News Broadcasts
I'm partial to KARE11 news, but you can have a good time at nearly any of them. Check their websites because they usually can give you a heads up on what might be special about each broadcast.
Leinie Lodge @ Night
Cant' afford the Grandstand or no appealing acts? Usually, the bandshell at night line-up is great. I've seen many different acts over the years and a few have won me over as a fan from the first note or drum beat.
Any Bench You Can Find: People
Let's face it, many of us go to the fair for the people watching. The population that the State Fair draws in is an attraction in itself! Mullets, and flip-flops and people who shouldn't be wearing tube tops! :)
