They call it “The Great Minnesota Get Together.” It’s a great place to eat, people watch and get the back of your flip-flops stepped on over and over.
The view as we entered the fairgrounds
If I eat nothing else at the fair (but of course, I did eat PLENTY else) I must have some deep fried cheese curds! (Abby, you don’t know what you’re missing!)
Tractors of days gone by
The sunflower garden
The Sky Ride
Mark and the kids check out an ice house. (For those of you in the less frozen states, this is used for ice fishing in the dead of winter. Only used by the crazies who actually enjoy sitting on a frozen lake.)
Most food is served on a stick, including Big Fat Bacon. (Sorry de-I. I couldn’t find the Hotdish on a Stick, nor the Spaghetti & Meatballs on a Stick.)
I was told the fish tacos were good. After much searching, we finally found them. They WERE pretty good, although they are NOTHING like a traditional taco.
Later in the day we met up with Kacey’s friend, Andi and her dad. The girls took a ride on the Crazy Mouse.
The weather was beautiful, we had a fun day and we all came home exhausted and desperately in need of showers! All in all the day was a great success.
