From the Fritter and Green tomato stand With butter and lots of powdered sugar!
It's always the first thing no matter if 9 am!
The view is fantastic at night, especially when the fireworks are going off.
Why even go if you're not gonna get theses! by mcjulie
The original and best place to get your fix of cheese! Yum. It is accompanied nicely with the next item listed....
You just can't make it like this at home. So delicious and thrirst quenching!
Corn on Stick
Wow....deliciously sweet corn dipped in a vat of melted butter and sprinkled with salt. It doesn't get any better than that!
Sweet Marthas Cookies!!!
The epitomy of all State Fair foods! Warm, milk chocolate cookies that melt in your mouth. Our tradition is to bring them to the all you can drink milk truck. Even non milk lovers can't seem to get enough of the stuff once eaten with Sweet Marthas cookies. Sooo yummmy. And no, they are not the same once you get them home in a bucket...good yes, but not nearly as good as fresh at the Fair! Definitely a must have for my family!

Food & Beverages
How can you go wrong with tons of deep fried options, food on a stick, Tall lemonade for a low price, BEER, all you can drink milk, new items every year, things made out of honey, etc. etc. etc. I can go on and on just about the food but there is also...
On the train it says "World's Largest Midway" I don't know if that is true but you gotta love your entertainment options. Kidway too. There are even Kidway rides I like to go on. I hope my God Daughter is in town so I can partake in those rides. Next is...
Music & Entertainment
They always get great entertainers for the Grandstand. The free shows are awesome too. Tonic Sol Fa, The MCC Gospel Choir, Boogie Wonderland, etc. I saw Mint Condition a few years ago and it was awesome. I also heard that Boyz II Men are putting on a free show. I'll have to check on that before I leave the web site, And finally there is...
The Overall Atmosphere
Minnesotans usually have this in common. A love for the Minnesota State fair. There's something for everyone. It's a great place to meet with family & friends. You have the Fine Arts Building, The Pet Center, the vendors, the free stages, the Bazaar, Heritage Square, the Midway & Kidway, the local television stations and radio stations, etc. It's no wonder the Saints are so fun. The stadium is so close to the fairgrounds it just rubs off. And I love the new things every year. The fair never gets boring. This year will be my 27th consecutive year going to the fair. I hope my streak continues into my 80's, 90's, even 100's. That's what the Fair means to be. It is my all time favorite place to be in the entire world. It was one of my grandpa's too and his name is forever at the fairgrounds. There are things that didn't make this list but are still why I love the fair. The history for example. It's just really amazing. Thanks for letting me share. I love talking about it.
