I love the Bazaar because it reminds me of a (much more compact) world market. There are so many vendors selling unique, hand-made goods and there's cuisine representing cultures all over the world. I can't wait to get a Mediterranean lemonade, buy some jewelry, and see Dosh & Maria Isa perform this year!
CHS Miracle of Birth Center
There's nothing that brightens a girl's day quite like adorable baby animals.
Fine Arts Building
I love that in the midst of food, fun and all of the other attractions, there's an art gallery!
Agriculture Horticulture Building
Besides the beautiful gardens that surround this building, I love looking at the entries for the flowers, fruit and wine competitions.
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.
