There is nothing like the Minnesota State Fair in my opinion. It is one of the reason I enjoy living in Mn

This year I actually entered a pumpkin! It was fun to be in a competition. The fair just can't be missed! Any kind of food you ever wanted! And who can go without a YUMMY Corn Dog or Pronto Pup? It's the first thing I get when I arrive! Lots to see, lots to learn! Bring lots of money....you'll need it! :)

As a 4-H-er, I won many trips to the State Fair for my sewing and canning during high-school and always enjoyed the experience at this excellent facility.
Now the well-tended grounds are much improved with a new technology building, more restrooms, a new grandstand and other updates.
The 50's car show in the summer is great fun, too.
