Myprontopup's Favorite Food List by Myprontopup
"Banquet on a Stick" - need I say more?
Manny's Cuban Tortas
A classic Cuban sandwich, and a darn good one at that. A little zesty - in a good way. Pairs nicely with cold Summit in the International Bazaar and some hot salsa rhythms.
Andy's Grill - Philly Cheese Steak
Cheese steak grilled to order. And make sure you stay for the musical interlude (typically at the top of each hour)... Go greased lightning, go!
Fresh French Fries
Why not? Not exotic, but tasty, local and fresh. Just like the fair itself.
After all these years... by muffy
chocolate milkshake is a must-have. then walk outside, cross the street for some fresh french fries to dip into the milkshake.
visit the pine trees and inhale deeply....aaaahhhhh! it's the holidays! then go visit the honey bees.
Creative activities building
visit to see if my mom has won any prizes. then move to the K-12 section to view the student art.
even more fun to visit now that i have kids. we especially enjoy the moms and babies "barn."
Favorite Family Traditions by MSF Staffer Ashley
Miracle of Birth Center
Thinking back on my childhood one of my best memories is how excited I was to go to the fair each summer. My family's first stop was to always see the adorable baby animals. I remember my anticipation as the days got closer and closer to the day when the fair opened. When the day was finally here and we arrived at the fair the first thing we always did was head to the Miracle of Birth Center and my waiting would finally be over. As I have grown up I may be a little more patient, but I still have kept my family tradition of seeing the Miracle of Birth Center first.
My parents always loved to entertain my sister and I and one way to do this was to take a ride on the Sky Ride. My mom's stomach could not handle the Midway rides, so this was there way to make it up to us. The Sky Ride is a great way to see the fair, but also an awesome time to take a couple minute break and just relax.
In Minnesota we do not get lots of international markets, so to give my sister and I some culture my parents always took us here to do some shopping. Through the years I have been talked into buying a lot of jewelery, hot sauces, and other unique treasures. I keep coming back every year to see what new treasures I will find.
