You have to stop by the arts building to see the winning pies and treats! One year a pie with fish-heads won a prize!
The people of Minnesota are a talented bunch. I am always amazed at the quilts and needlepoint that are on display!
This is a great opportunity to see chainsaw artists at their work. Take a drink and a corndog and watch as they sculpt wonders out of wood!
Whether you are into tractors or cars, antiques or Ford's newest model, this is the place to get your 'Ooh and Ahh' on!
Just One?!? by Jill Mulwee
Not to be confused with the corn dog. I might as well get the footlong size each time. I MIGHT go back fewer times. :-)
It's not just for breakfast!
Sweet Martha's Cookies and AYCD Milk
The best combo at the fair! Buy a bucket of cookies, find a spot close to the All You Can Drink Milk and take turns getting refills for one another. WARNING! Don't fill up at the beginning of the day...truly a task for the end of the day.
We've learned the hard way...don't ravage a basket of these golden pieces of heaven first thing. A good base of about a foot long and a breakfast hot dogs are a must!

I spend a majority of my time at the Bandshell listening to all of the awesome music...newcomers to has beens.
Must have at least one bucket per visit...why doesn't it taste that great at home??
Love walking through the grandstand to look at all the items they are selling
Always pick up that Giant Rice Krispie bars to eat on the way home, and many other items "buy one get one free" that I really don't need but what a bargain!!
My "Have to do more than once" List by Jill Mulwee
Watching at least one dog show after the long walk up machinery hill
Find a spot early, meet up with the fam and send your husband to get you a pronto pup and lemonade while you wait. :-)
Great for all ages! A great end of the day treat for the kids.
Visit the many different breeds of cows. It's great to see how well these families raise such wonderful animals year after year!
