Had a great time at the Minnesota State Fair again this year. The whole family went on the Sunday of the Milk Run and spent most of the day there. Colleen and I also went solo on Wednesday night to see Gnarls Barkley at the Grandstand. The concert was cut short because of rain, but it was fun anyway. And I can’t remember the last time I saw fireworks during a lightning storm.
As we were running to the parking lot in the rain, we decided to stop in at the beer garden to look for my friend and HSRA studio wizard Art Haynes. His band, Mojo Roots, has played the State Fair for the past few years and they totally tear it up every night. Check them out if you can.
We didn’t really try any new foods this year, but enjoyed all of the old favorites. One new twist was our discovery that the physical education teacher at Deerwood Elementary also helps run the corn roast booth. What a great gig!
I’m always sort of sad when the fair is over–it’s truly a Minnesota classic.Originally published by DK on September 16, 2008 at 11:44 pm
