My "Have to do more than once" List by Jill Mulwee
Watching at least one dog show after the long walk up machinery hill
Find a spot early, meet up with the fam and send your husband to get you a pronto pup and lemonade while you wait. :-)
Great for all ages! A great end of the day treat for the kids.
Visit the many different breeds of cows. It's great to see how well these families raise such wonderful animals year after year!
My "GOTTA HAVE 'EM" foods at the fair!!!! by Jule Z
Abouta Foot Long Hot Dog
Bigger than the bun juicy skin on hot dog with tons of raw onions!!
Key Lime Bar
Cold, tangy, refreshing key lime pie on a graham cracker crust, dipped in dark chocolate and frozen on a stick - - absolutely delish!!!!!
The big one with the vanilla whip cream - best way to eat it is just let it get all over your face and enjoy!!!
Coffee Blenter or Hot coffee at Java Joint
Coffee blenders for hot days! They are a slushy, refreshing, brain freezing coffee (I always sip it too fast!!)- and if it's cooler outside the fresh, strong, hot coffee of the day is a must!
My "down home" favorites by Catherine
Category:Attractions & Exhibits
Butter Heads sculptures
Truly ah-mazing ! I always make the trip to the Dairy Bldg. to stand in awe of the huge butter sculptures.
Quilts & Stitchery
I love to see all the colorful patters of the quilts from every corner of the State. The delicate stitchery reminds me of my mothers handiwork.In the Creative Activities Annex.
Floral arrangements & FFA County exhibits
I loose tract of time looking at the gorgeous flower exhibits in the center of the Ag-Hort bldg. The lanes of the County FFA exhibits remind me of the Fair's agricultural origins.
When my feet are tired & I want a change of pace, I just sit a spell & people watch. All of Minnesota passes in view. Way fun !
Must-See Wonders! by Sara Stambaugh
You have to stop by the arts building to see the winning pies and treats! One year a pie with fish-heads won a prize!
The people of Minnesota are a talented bunch. I am always amazed at the quilts and needlepoint that are on display!
This is a great opportunity to see chainsaw artists at their work. Take a drink and a corndog and watch as they sculpt wonders out of wood!
Whether you are into tractors or cars, antiques or Ford's newest model, this is the place to get your 'Ooh and Ahh' on!
