my must haves/see by Megan Warn
They are as amazing as the funny/silly man who owns the cart. Pickle dogs are a yummy piece of pastrami with cream cheese smeared all over it and a pickle on top, rolled up for easy consumption! I eat three every time I go to the fair.
strawberries and cream
that's it, just whole berries and cool whip. I could get it at home but it tastes better with a spork! Don't forget to whip a sporkfull at your sister!
cute cute piglets and chicks and cows, sheep and whatever else is entering the world that day. need I say more? oh! sometimes you get to touch them! don't forget to sanitize!
Keep and eye out for lost flip flops on the tops of buildings and don't forget to smooch your sweetheart half way though!

Climbing the Fire Tower
I managed to attend the fair for 25+ years before discovering the fire tower outside the DNR building last year. Great view of the fairgrounds, plus a dude shows you how our forests were once protected by fire spotters with a compass and a walkie talkie.
State Fair Bingo
I make Bingo cards, hand them out to my fellow fair-goers, and see who can mark 5 spaces first. We're watching for things like, Favre Jersey, Guy with a mullet, lady yanking her kid by the arm, Rascal scooter, shirt with fresh food stain, kid on a leash
Before computer screen pixels were created, people had to make their own out of Minnesota-grown grains and seeds. And make them they did! The tradition of arranging seed and grain pixels into works of art continues today, and I cannot wait to see what crops up this year!
Baby animals being born
At the Miracle of Birth building. You may see a birth miracle that looks more like a bloody massacre, but if you can look at a day-old lamb without melting, you are not human.
