First at the Fair
I love arriving early in the morning when most stands haven't even opened for the day yet. Everything feels so fresh and new and the whole day is before you.
Blue Moon Diner
Breakfast waffles early in the morning sitting on car seats in a drive-in setting watching old movies. Great way to start the day!
Lots and lots of choices of ice cream and I can have as much as I want!
We always finish up the day with that last slice of pizza at Pizza Palace.
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?
