Minnesota State Fair

On Friday, September 4, my family, my parents-in-law from Iowa and I spent the day at the Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul just 20 minutes north of Eagan. We ate funny foods, rode thrilling rides, saw farm animals, and walked and walked and walked!


Our 9 year old tried hand milking a cow outside the cow barns.






The art building is a fun place to look at paintings, photographs, sculptures and other art media. Lots of ribbon winners in there!

  4. You lucky dog! Or something. One of the things I do miss about Minnesota is the Minnesota State Fair...we'd never miss it when we were teenagers and young adults...

    Then we moved away...

    Glad you had a good time. Milking a cow is hard work...hope your daughter didn't strain her hand!

    Have a great Labor Day, and don't belabor the fact you have to go back to work tomorrow!

  7. Fun at the fair. My favorite food is the Italian eggrole from Vescio's stand.

    Good to meet you last week. We're all about exploring and photographing with friendly bantering while learning new tips and techniques together.

  16. I never miss the State Fair. If I told you how many I've attended, you'd know my age. I only missed when the Polio epidemice hit. This one had the best weather ever.
