State Fair Fours
Now viewing 17 - 20
Spread It Out by Doug Skapyak
Foot Long Hot Dog
I dare myself to wait till 10 AM, but what a treat with ketchup & onions.
Philly Steak Sandwich
Andy's Diner at 12:30. Best sandwich at the fair. Catch the dance show on the counter.
Nothing better on a hot afternoon than one of these from the Dairy Building while watching the tube rafters get wet.
French Fries and a Big Root Beer
Get ready for the Sunday Night Talent Show at the Grandstand with this combination at 5:30 PM.
Fun that's FREE by Suzi McDonough
Climbing the Fire Tower
I managed to attend the fair for 25+ years before discovering the fire tower outside the DNR building last year. Great view of the fairgrounds, plus a dude shows you how our forests were once protected by fire spotters with a compass and a walkie talkie.
State Fair Bingo
I make Bingo cards, hand them out to my fellow fair-goers, and see who can mark 5 spaces first. We're watching for things like, Favre Jersey, Guy with a mullet, lady yanking her kid by the arm, Rascal scooter, shirt with fresh food stain, kid on a leash
Before computer screen pixels were created, people had to make their own out of Minnesota-grown grains and seeds. And make them they did! The tradition of arranging seed and grain pixels into works of art continues today, and I cannot wait to see what crops up this year!
Baby animals being born
At the Miracle of Birth building. You may see a birth miracle that looks more like a bloody massacre, but if you can look at a day-old lamb without melting, you are not human.
4H exhibitor's top 4 list! by Rena
4H exhibitors only! Must have a 4H button to get in, but they are the best thing ever! Livestock exhibitor dance in the swine barn, general project dances in the 4H building. If you are a fellow exhibitor, you can't miss these!
Allergies in the Goat Barn
My friends show goats, and I'm always in the goat barn, but I have allergies. Oh well, its totally worth it!
Education Building, and other Free Stuff
Can't wait to go on another search for all the free stuff we can find with my friends this year! The printout from the state fair website is very helpful! Wait in line for an hour to spin a wheel! I hope I don't leave all my goodies in the 4H dorm again :(
I love washing my chickens at the State fair, and listening to people's comments "wow, look at her, she's washing a chicken!" Yes, chickens have to be clean for shows too.
Gwen's Top Four by Gwen in the Office
So fun to sit and watch the parade of people go by! What an eclectic group of folks come to the fair....
Amazing Art at the Fine Arts Building
Every year we are floored by the paintings & sculptures. So much talent and deep emotion......
State Fair tradition to wait until we are tired & warm and then visit the the milk booth and get refreshed!
New Baby Barn
How can anyone miss the chance to see new babies? To see an actual birth is not something city kids get to experience.
