The State Fair; It's Not Just for the Food by Kathy Fischer
The Sights, Sounds, Smells
The State Fair marks a place in time for me - a transition from the heat of August to the cool, crisp days of fall. The sounds of kids laughing; the Mighty Midway screams among the blaring music from the rides; the parades; and the occasional tree toad singing out from the great trees that line the streets, are some of the sounds I look forward to every year. And who doesn't enjoy the smells of fried onions and hot dogs, chocolate chip cookies and hamburgers permeating the air as one makes their way throughout the streets. And lastly, the great anticipation for the next Minnesota State Fair to return once again when summer fades into autumn.
Where else in one building can one find such a vast array of information - from where to attend college to information on your health!
Corn at the Corn Roast - Hot & Buttered!
The greatest treat at the fair - don't have to schuck it, cook it, salt or butter it - and when you have "mowed" down the last row, it's also recyclable!!
This is a must have, always great - with mustard or ketchup!

I LOVE Pronto Pups! And I don't have just one! They are a staple of the "The State Fair"!!!!
Believe it or not, I love the smell and I like to look at all the cows.
