REAL Fair Food! by Mr. Al in Kentucky
At the fair, I try to eat things that remind me of the rural farming communities of Minnesota. One of these is the sweet corn at the stand near the grandstand. Minnesota is a big corn producing state!
Swedish Meatballs/Egg Coffee
The Swedish meatballs and egg coffee at the Salem Lutheran Church dining hall bring back memories of the many Swedish Meatball Dinners of my home church, Marshall Lutheran Church, rural Adams, Minn.
I go to Andres Watermelon stand on Underwood St. at least three times during the fair. The fresh watermelon reminds me of the many home gardeners in Minn.
Ham Loaf Dinner
At least one ham loaf dinner at Hamline United Methodist Church dining hall is a must during the fair. Brings back memories of the many hogs we raised on our farm in Clayton Township, Mower County. We sold all of our hogs to Hormel's in Austin where they were processed into many good hams!

The variety of people who come to the fair and their looks.
lines you wait in
when it’s for food, rides, or free stuff you just get in it because of the line. You don't care what it is you just get in and hope it doesn't run out till you get it.
friends you meet.
No matter where you go you meet new friends and always seem to run into someone from your home town. People are happy and willing to help you at every corner.
At every corner of the fair there is some kind of free entertainment for every age. Where you can go and rest and listen to music, laugh, or be awed.
Desi's Family #2 by Desiree
Just plain yummy. Italian sausage on a roll with sauce and cheese.
My nephew has to have these every year after we leave the dog building. They are so yummy and you can take a cup home with you. Cinni Mini's with ice cream are how we roll!
Mom has to have the BIG bucket of fries from the big stand. We all whine about her ordering the big bucket because we say we don't need all of it. But in the end we clean out the bucket.
So light and fluffy you can eat them on a full stomach! Outside of Heritage Square.
Drink Up! by Howard Salwasser
By far the biggest bang for your dollar bill. Mix and match if you like, or chug down whatever you prefer. Now only if someone can bring back a flavored milk stand.
Got a coupon? Know where the Visitor's Plaza is? They're right there.
Especially if it's free water, like at the Culligan booth near Gate 5. Also you can bring your own water in to the fair.
Genius. Pure genius this idea.
