I don’t know how the Minnesota State Fair compares to other state fairs. I don’t even know what other states have state fairs. I only ever needed the one I guess. Here are some of the things that, for good or bad, make it such a spectacle and an experience.
In a place known for cheese curds, deep fried candy bars, alligator on a stick, etc.. I ate a chicken wrap and drank water. And a sandwich from the deli on the way to the fair. I guess.. I’m here to observe, not partake.
That car automatically wins every race.
Three young ladies were, I’m assuming, babysitting a small group of kids. I have never seen this before.
Please don’t call them.. But they were nice.
Randomly a marching band followed by a cow-idol. Parades, why not.
Long green beans, why not.
Farms made of cans, why not.
Thanks Gander Mountain. Andrew wore his free cardboard bird hat for about ten minutes before throwing it away.
Group karaoke? Why… not… no.
So.. I didn’t manage to get this guy in focus. But now that doesn’t matter. Ta-dah.
Most of these kids launched off the ramps and just jumped off their boards. Oh well, not like I’m going to try to show anyone how it’s done.
Is this cool?..
Really doesn’t seem like much that you can’t see here.
Jack Sparrow was hanging around the haunted house.
Only a little cup. Not trying to die here.
Oh my god. I just uploaded these onto the page and realized I have two shots of this Skyflyer thing… But I’m too OCD to just delete one because.. the pictures are numbered!! and now you know. DAMN!
Jerry Springer hanging out at the fair.. Some people cared.
Somehow I’ve still never been on this thing??
I did 19 pullups at the army reserve booth but could only manage 14 later at the marines booth.. and I was training for the marines one!! I just couldn’t find it..
Yes, there’s art at the fair as well. I think most people go just to get out of the sun. Of the pic: very Donnie Darko.
Go figure, these are the only two that caught my attention.
A good haul I guess.
I didn’t even use this exit. But I did leave in the late afternoon.. Only to go back a few hours later. Coming up.. night shots.
