The Ferris Wheel
The really really really big one.
Sit in a chair and go in a circle.

Hanson Family Tradition by Katie Hanson
We have been attending the MN State Fair as a family for over 28 years straight!
Food, Food and more Food
No one can beat all the food the MN State Fair has to offer! Some of our favorites include: Pork Chops on a stick, Corn on the Cob, Corn Fritters and who can forget Pronto Pups!
We spend over 10 hours at the fair every Saturday of Labor Day weekend and there is nothing we enjoy more than parking ourselves on a bench with a beer in hand and enjoy all the people who come out to the fair!
Shopping and Wandering throughout the buildings
Who says you can't find deals at the MN State Fair? I am pretty sure we have purchased every gadget from the QuickChop to Sham-Wows! We also love to wander through all the buildings and check out the latest technology and even be brave enough to weigh ourselves in the Education Building!

It's displayed in the horticulture building. You'd never guess that such amazing things can be made with seeds.
Ye Old Mill
The diaramas are a kitschy, out-of-proportion treat! I never miss going on this ride!
Sending a postcard from the fair
The annual fair poster is also available as a postcard, which you can mail right at the fair so that it's cancelled with the fair postmark.
The llama costume contest
I was surprised when I stumbled across this event one year. It's surprising to me that the llamas cooperate in being dressed up by their owners. Definitely something you don't see everyday.
