Spirit of Minnesota by BAB
Go to the Dairy Barn and see the princesses get their heads carved in butter. Speculate what you'd do, if your daughter was a princess and brought home her butterhead.

OMG the winter must last forever in Minnesota. How else would people have enough time to make such gorgeous and intricate projects?
What's the funniest home canned entry? Who eats home canned grapes anyway?
Stand on the hilly street near the animal bars on a Saturday afternoon and watch the waves of people. Count the folks on crutches and the pregnant women and realize that nothing can stand between a real Minnesotan and the Fair. Now go get a malt and toast your observation!

Anything That's New This Year
Some of My Best Memories by Kathy Kuehn
My dad always entered the stained glass competition every year and came away with many blue ribbons. Once I learned the craft, I began to enter and was thrilled to win my first blue ribbon!
When I was a kid my girlfriend lived about 3 blocks from the fair. Every year I would stay with her during fair week. At night we could hear the grandstand shows through her window. I still remember hearing the Supremes concert back in the 1960's!
Many great memories of the Royal American Shows of the past, the double ferris wheel rides at night, winning huge stuffed animals, and introducing my kids to the midway and arcade games when they were young!
Needless to say, the food choices get better and better every year. In fact, this year my son is working for a new vendor who will be selling hot apple dumplings! YUM.
