Yes!! Camping @ the fair, with family & "Fair" friends. Usually back in the camp grounds in time to see the fireworks display from the grandstand. then its lights out,its time to rest up for another "Fair" Day!!
The Gelhaye Birthday summer fun fair by Shell Gelhaye
Do I have to even say more, Some of the gourmet treats I only get once a year at the fair. Pronto pups and anything else on the sticks
knick knacks and homemaid arts
I love it you can always buy stuff you don't need but have to buy. Owls made from rocks and kitchen gadgets that make it fun to cook.
We love seeing all the animals! Crazy haired rabbits and animals you would love to have but are illegal to keep in your backyard. Goats are always funny no matter what they stand on.
Wow! I have seen so many good shows outside at the fair. They always sound so good. Even if you don't buy tickets you can walk around outside and listen while you eat a porkchop on a stick.
Places I Call Home by Vanessa Bjerke
Leinie Lodge Bandshell
Home to some of the best free entertainment at the fair - including, my favorite, the nightly Amateur Talent Contest.
Giggles Campfire Grill
Home to the most delicious footlong walleye sandwich you'll ever taste. Take a peek around the back to enjoy some time eating on the picnic tables - there is always room!
Creative Activities Building
Home to the homemade. Take a walk through the maze of quilts, pies, jams, and other homemade goodies. Pretty amazing stuff...
Fine Arts Building
Home to the art. My favorites tend to be the photographs. It's a nice place to take a break from the sun.
Must Do's/Eat by Edward Smith
Must haves: corn on the cob, pork chop on a stick, sundae from the dairy building, Sweet Martha's Cookies, pronto pups, deep fried cheese curds.
Concerts at the Grandstand and the Leinie's Free Stage.
Seeing the exhibits in the Agriculture Building. Checking out the new RV's and cars. Going to the U of M booth.
Just walking around among the masses.
