Every year Dan and I make our annual trip to the Minnesota State Fair. And every year, our first stop is the creative arts building. This is where I get to ooh and aah over all the gorgeous creations.
The best of the best are entered here and the skill, creativity and craftsmanship is just amazing!
I thought it would be fun to share with you some of the quilts that were entered. Don't you just love this pink creation! Ooh it would have been good for a Pink Saturday post.
And it's Minnesota so of course we have a Viking Santa!
Here are some fun facts about the Minnesota State Fair.
The Minnesota State Fair is one of the largest in the country covering 320 acres.
Last year's attendance was just under two million.
The first Minnesota State fair was held in 1859.
Presidents Coolidge, Eisenhower, Harding, Teddy Roosevelt and Taft all made appearances at the fair.
And Teddy Roosevelt gave one of his most famous speeches, "Speak Softly and Carry a Big Stick" at the Minnesota State Fair in 1901.
I have a few more fun pics I hope to share later this week.
Have a great Monday.
And speaking of Mondays, I am joining Smiling Sally for Blue Monday.
