It wasn't our State Fair but it was the Minnesota State Fair for we spent Labor Day weekend in Minneapolis. And Daughter Sarah and her Andy took us to the State Fair in St. Paul.
I haven't been to a State Fair since I was 20 . . . and I fainted in the "Freak Tent" (not because of the "freaks" but because there wasn't any air!) So it was fun to go to a State Fair again!
And what does one see at a State Fair?
Baby lambs . . .
Baby ducks . . .
And food . . .
|They sold cones and buckets of hot chocolate chip cookies|
Cookies (not mine, alas, although I wish it were -- I was told that that food stand grosses $1.2 M during the fair!)
And only in Minnesota would you find . . .
|Hot Dish is Minnesota's State Dish!|
or . . .
|The only church booth we saw at the Fair. It was in an old building.|
I do think Lutheran is German for coffee!!!
And, of course, . . .
|The same woman has been sculpting the Fair Queens in butter for 40 years.|
|Garrison Keillor's tradition of taping his show at the Minnesota State Fair for broadcast the next evening.|
We ended our evening with Garrison Keillor and his Prairie Home Companion from the Minnesota State Fair.
It's Wednesday and I'm joining Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday! There isn't anything more "outdoor" than a State Fair!
