People tend to check in during these times:
Visit the DFL booth! Politicians give speeches and host meet and greets there!
The foods and people watching
Listening to Old Dominion. Great country band. Having a Linnie. Lovin life!!!!
Great family fun!!
The Deep Fried Ribs at Ballpark Cafe are worth checking out.
State Fair Drinking Game: take a drink every time you see someone stop on Judson to take a photo of the crowds.
Two words: tipsy pies.
Get to the Fair before 8am. No crowds, it's cooler, & you can enjoy a Blue Barn breakfast.
Best fair in the country.
Sweet Martha's Cookies!
Great day for a beer fest!
The fair is neat, but check out the fairgrounds throughout the year. Oktoberfest, comic conventions, roller derby with the North Star Roller Girls, and more fun events!
Closing down my 2014 state fair
Park and Rides, don't try to drive here. Cheese Curds are a must. Also: pronto pups, nitro ice cream, deep fried candy bars, and cider freezes
Sweet Corn Ice Cream @ Blue Moon is delicious!
Hands down - buckeyes on a stick! OMG !
Minnesota's Get Together
This is my favorite part of the fair. The crowds.
Gluten free at the fair with my sweetie!
Sweet Martha's Cookies were off this year, but are usually amazing. 1919 root beer and Mediterranean lemonade are also highlights.
Pork collar from Famous Dave's is excellent. Sweet, tart, little spicy.
At The Int'l Bazaar.. Ticket to Brasil... in the rain:-)
A day at the fair!
The largest pumpkin contest!!!
pretty easy to catch a taxi on como as long as you beat the grandstand crowd
Great night to be at the fair!
Cheese curds, malts, corn on the cob, shows at the Grandstand, and cold beer!
Cheese curds from the food building and pronto dogs (corn dogs) are the best of the classics! And you can't beat a cold glass of 1919 root beer.
Getting some fat for the winter
Getting fat for the winter!
It's the great Minnesota get together! Everything is on a stick. Check out sweet Martha's cookies and the fried pickles and the waffle ice cream sandwich.
On tv between 3-4pm twin cities live!
Get the bucket of cookies - a souvenir you'll keep to the day you die
itinerary for parents with a toddler: ride the carousel on the kidway, visit the butterfly house, pet baby animals at miracle of birth, buy inflatable pony to stop the whining, head home for nap time
Eat something on a stick. Repeat.
Try the lobster roll!! Amazing! And the Korean beef at Famous Dave's! And of course you must get a bucket of Sweet Matha's cookies!
Get the waffle ice cream sandwich! Add a bit of Nutella for good measure
Fun fun fun fun
Pickle dogs and beer.
Molly's first time at the fair!!!
State Fair! Nothing else to say!
At the fair with my ladies
The best event ever! Try a Pronto Pup, cheese curds from the Mouth Trap and Luigi Fries. Head to the International Bazaar for some awesome food and shopping.
Don't plan much, just wonder and have fun!
