Everyone must go to the MN State Fair at least once, preferably more, in their life! Everything is on a stick. Animals, attractions, rides, food, beer, and great people watching!

To paraphrase a Minnesota blogger, the noise, chaos, crowding, and excess make the Minnesota State Fair dreadful for the introverted or thoughtful. It remains popular and a regional touchstone.
