We also tried the pretzel curds, which were amazing, and the walleye mac’n’cheese, also very good.
Visit Any of the Animal Barns.
The rabbit barn and/or the chicken barn, or any of the animal barns actually…last year, I milked a goat. This year, we caught a bit of the goat competition. All good fun.
Miracle of Birth Center: The Miracle of Birth center is also usually interesting, but it was just way too crowded yesterday to fight our way through.
All-You-Can-Drink-Milk: Dustin loves the all-you-can-drink milk, but we opted for a shake in the dairy building instead yesterday.
Traditional Fair Food: Pronto Pups, Sweet Martha’s cookies, Deep-Fried Candy Bars (way too rich for me, but Dustin likes these), and of course, anything on a stick. It’s true, I spent 6 hours at the fair, walking over 6 miles, but I didn’t consume ANYTHING on a stick. We kept meaning to get the mango on a stick at the Midtown Global Market, but we never made it over there. So technically, I didn’t cross this item off of my summer bucket list this year… But nonetheless, we enjoyed a lot of our Minnesota State Fair traditions, while making some new ones!
Did you make it to the fair this weekend?
Tell me what are some of your state fair traditions?
