First Time Visitor
The Minnesota State Fair, one of the largest in the nation, just ended this week. I had the pleasure of attending the popular event. Unfortunately, it was just for one afternoon and evening, but I enjoyed the whole show very much. Following are a few snapshots I got off from my cell phone camera. Enjoy!
What would a state fair be without cotton candy? This fair from this large mid-western agricultural state had everything you would expect and more. Here, is a cotton candy booth. Other treats included corn on the cob, corn dogs, bratwurst, foot-long hot dogs, homemade root beer and flannel cakes. Sometimes, it’s nice to enjoy the simple things in life.
Then there was the oddball assortment of food like the deep-fried Twinkies pictured here. Actually, they weren’t too bad – and next door another vendor sold a dessert that appeared and looked like dirt. In fact, it was called just that, “dirt”. I didn’t try any, but many did and everyone seemed to come away quite pleased. Each dish even came with a few simulated corn-syrup worms.
What would a state fair be without judged contests. These events were everywhere and included livestock, food items, art work and many other agendas.
Hope you enjoyed these pictures. So if you are even in the Twin Cities area in late August or early September be sure to check this event out. It is enormous, fun, immense and only cost around $10 to $12. Best way to get there though is by local bus.
