What is left of the farm machinery - Lots of fun family memories of Grandpa's and fair family memories!
Getting to see the different breeds of dogs and all the things you can see there and watch what the dogs can do!
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?

Fabulous Fun in the Minnesota Sun by Julie Ann
under the grandstand, in the different buildings such as on Machinery Hill... some bargains to catch and some different people to watch
ice cream in the Dairy Building, cheese curds from Dan Patch Blvd(?), corn on the cob just down the street.. OH, and the cookies and mini donuts!!!.. pigging out on all sorts of goodies~ YUM!
4H building and the barns..
I LOVE looking at all the projects the kids do. And the entertainment provided is the best too!!.... the smell ain't the best.. but to see and pet the pigs and sheep and horses and other animals is great. (bring the hand sanitizer!) giggle....
TV & Radio booths
seeing all my favorite dj's up close and seeing how much fun they have, it is great. It makes the rest of my year more fun when I am listening to the radio or watching local television. :)
