A few of my favorite things... by Jennifer G.
Who doesn't go to the Fair with a list of food items to list? Mine includes fries, a pronto pup, a dairy building malt, fried ravioli, cheese curds, Sweet Marthas cookies, etc.
There are all kinds of people at the Fair. I love just sitting and watching what they do...
A stop at the Creative Arts Building is a must, as is the animal barns and grandstand sales!
I go to one Grandstand Event every year. This year - Brandi Carlile! YEAH

Creative Arts Buidling
I enter the areas of sewing, knitting and my favorite food preservation especially pickles.
Ice Cream Cone
I have to stop to see the butter carvings and get an ice cream cone.
Cheese Curds/Onion Rings
Our family has to stop at the food building and eat our favorites. ALso to keep up our energy to see everything at the fair.
Our children are 4-H alumni now. But we still go to the building to see all the exhibits, watch the Arts In performance, fashion review and hope to run into some our of 4-H friends.
Favorite Family Traditions by MSF Staffer Ashley
Miracle of Birth Center
Thinking back on my childhood one of my best memories is how excited I was to go to the fair each summer. My family's first stop was to always see the adorable baby animals. I remember my anticipation as the days got closer and closer to the day when the fair opened. When the day was finally here and we arrived at the fair the first thing we always did was head to the Miracle of Birth Center and my waiting would finally be over. As I have grown up I may be a little more patient, but I still have kept my family tradition of seeing the Miracle of Birth Center first.
My parents always loved to entertain my sister and I and one way to do this was to take a ride on the Sky Ride. My mom's stomach could not handle the Midway rides, so this was there way to make it up to us. The Sky Ride is a great way to see the fair, but also an awesome time to take a couple minute break and just relax.
In Minnesota we do not get lots of international markets, so to give my sister and I some culture my parents always took us here to do some shopping. Through the years I have been talked into buying a lot of jewelery, hot sauces, and other unique treasures. I keep coming back every year to see what new treasures I will find.
