It was the day I’ve been anticipating ever since I started dating a native Minnesotan — the Minnesota State Fair! I had a blast at the fair with Adam and his family this past weekend. Here are some highlights.
There were a LOT of people there — we later found out it was the busiest Minnesota State Fair attendance day in history.
Everything was deep fried and on a stick, obviously.
And then there were the animals. So many animals.
We even got up close and personal with pigs.
And then for some reason for which I have no explanation, this happened:
Oh yeah, and babies too:
Of course, there were butter carvings:
And my favorite part — the giant singalong:
Art made of corn and seeds:
And a giant slide:
I didn’t take photos of all of the food I ate for fear of judgment, but let me tell you some of the highlights: Fried cookie dough on a stick, smooth “nitro” ice cream (made from liquid nitrogen), deep fried apple pie with cinnamon ice cream, and “more.”
A great time was had by all.
