What else does late August in Minnesota mean except it is time for the annual Minnesota State Fair. As you can tell, we love fair food and made a day of eating our way through the exhibits, midway, and animal barns.
Our favorites: pronto pups and deep friend cheese curds. Food we were afraid to try: alligator on a stick and big fat bacon on a stick. We managed to see the parade twice, witnessed the birth of a calf (birthing chains, OUCH!!), took in the view on the Sky Needle, petted fluffy bunnies, counted newly hatched chicks, gazed at Princess Kay of the Milky Way carved in butter, ran into friends and family, slid down the Big Slide on burlap bags, watched the judging of a country western style horse show, and rode rides on the Midway for an hour without anyone losing all of that food they had consumed. I think we are all worn out for today, but the Minnesota State Fair runs through Labor Day. We may be back!
