Daily Parade on Dan Patch
Wouldn't miss the floats and marching bands, favorite couldn't miss; the year the Royal Canadian Mounted Police marched in the parade.
The Animal Barns Before 8:00
Wouldn't miss the animals quietly lounging and couldn't miss the kids who show them are sleeping soundly nearby because they were up most of the night socializing
Chuck & Don's Pet Center
Wouldn't miss buying the domestic animals at home a selection of appropriate State Fair goodies, couldn't miss any attraction on the long walk down to that end of the Fairgrounds
The feeling you get when you walk through the Admission gate
Wouldn't miss the Minnesota State Fair! Couldn't miss the fun of being there! It's un-Fair to restrict this list to four things!

Most Corn-tastic Fair Finds by epfeilsticker
You smell it a block away and it just pulls you in...is anything as uniquely State-Fair-esque as that oddly satisfying aroma of hundreds of burned corn husks!
Get them with some sweet butter and Fried Green Tomatoes outside the Food Building. Best unexpected find I ever had at the fair...I look forward to them every year.
Corn Dogs (duh)
Pronto Pups are great, but can you get one a foot and a half long? Nope--need a good ol' fashioned corn dog!!
Hang out at the Bandshell, Carousel Park, the Merch Mart or anywhere else where people are on microphones and you're bound to hear one or twelve. What's more Minnesotan than a corny sense of humor?
