MY BEST FOUR AT THE FAIR! by Jill Robinson
Category: Family Fun
The Great MN Get Together!
My family has been attending The Great MN Get together since we were little kids, and now i bring my family and friends too, to have a great time together. Weve gone every year and wouldnt miss it for the world!!
THE food is a must!
U must get the Corn onthe cob,Pork chop on a stick,Sweet marthas cookies,Fresh cut french fries, and the fresh SQueezed lemonade,and dont forget the blooming onions, Cause u cant replace food like this, and it only comes once a year!
Theres been nothing like sitting outside the Grandstand and listening to ur favorite band,eating marthas cookies and drinking cold fresh milk from the dairy barn in the evenings.!
THE SEA SHELL hangings!
Every year i always go to the bazaar and by one the new shells hanging up. ive gotten one every year and never missed cause u cant get em any where else but here. its always a must have and the best part of my year at the fair!
My Affair with the Fair by Fair Fan
The Blue Ribbon Bargain Book
The kickoff to state fair season. I get the book in July and read the coupons over and over, gazing at those little maps on the back, I visualize myself bellying up to the white counters of the concession stands, coming away with foot long corn dogs and baskets of buy-one-get-one free fried delights. I plan Opening Thursday like it was Normandy with this thing.
Food Only At The Fair
Though trial and error I've found you CAN re-create a peanut butter hot dog (served at the Blue Moon Diner), but you just can't replicate those french fries in the red and yellow striped buckets, Sweet Martha's, Tiny Tims, a skewer of Veggie Fries, Macaroni and Cheese on a Stick, Ruben dawgs, impaled pork chops, delicious knishes, or softer-than-snow Hawaiian Shaved Ice. I'd also argue that Coke is sweeter here than anywhere else and that all food tastes better when served in a checkered paper basket with a little white plastic fork.
A Fair Sized Stuffed Animal
Nothing like hugging warm synthetic fur on a breezy summer night. As you leave the the Midway, everyone can see what a big winner you are. Without a six-foot neon blue gorilla, how else would they know?
It's when all fair goers are united -whether we're watching from the Grandstand show or a bench on Dan Patch, a spinning Tilt-a-Whirl, the line for late-night mini-donuts, or the window of the Sky Ride's gondola - the nightly fireworks bring us together, flood us with state fair memories of years gone by, and remind us that it's time to say good bye until next year.
My "SEED" FOUR by Mo Kvam
Immediately grab an ear of corn and off we go.
Fried Green Tomatoes
No other fried food taste so delicious and so seasonal.
Beer on a stick
At the international bazar we hydrate from our walking and eating with a locally brewed libation.
With a full belly we complete the day with the wonders of meticulous seed art.
