Visit: Minnesota State Fair

August 23, 2007 at 8:30 pm 1 comment

It might be possible that I am one of the only people in Minnesota who hasn’t been to the fair in over 10 years. People around here tend to be OBSESSED with the fair. Why? After I go visit it…I will let you know. So far I dont really understand it…but here are some good reasons I have come up with to go to it…

Minnesota State Fair: Pros & Cons


1. A billion people…hot sticky August in MN weather…gross…

2. Lines, Lines, Lines….as Chandler Bing would say: “Dont you feel like cattle…MOOOOOOOOOOOOO!”

3. Expensive: 11 dollars to get in…plus more $$$ for all the food.


1. Sweet Martha’s Cookies. DELICIOUS!


2. Mini-Donuts…And eating a bunch of junk without feeing guilty!
3. A friend’s band, The Usual Suspects, is playing at one of the free stages. So really we are going to support him. Thats the real reason.

4. To taste test the difference between a corn-dog and a pronto pup. Now…this is a very serious debate around these parts. Whats the secret? A corn dog has corn batter, a pronto pup has wheat batter.

5. PEOPLE WATCHING!!! PEOPLE WATCHING!!! I think between this and Sweet Marthas it is worth the price of admission.

What are the best things to see and do at the MN State Fair? Let me know what should not be missed!

    Best things…there are so many that I love. The crop art, the creative arts building, and the butterheads. The fine arts building, the flower displays, and the animals (particularly the chickens, sheep, and pigs).

    We love the fair so much, we go usually three times a year.

    Have fun!
