State Fair 2019 Edition

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. I go to the Minnesota State Fair about once every five years and this was my year. I went early in the morning on opening day. By the time I left in the early afternoon, it was pretty crowded.

Our State Fair is an experience. I can remember attending as a child and I can remember bringing my own children. It changes a little every year but somehow remains the same too. I generally avoid eating anything deep fried even if it is on a stick. I ended up having a pretzel and an ice cream cone for lunch. I walked a total of 7.5 miles and took a few pictures. I did check out the home improvement building, the horticultural building, and the grandstand.

I visited the Mighty Midway as all fair attendees should.  One of my favorite places to visit is the creative activities building. I got there before the crowds and looked at the quilts and the baked goods and more.

Just outside the creative activities building is a display of horses made from yarn. Where else can a person see a horse made of yarn?

I’ll probably attend the fair again in 2024. It will be different than it was this year but it will be the same too.
