The Minnesota State Fair is the largest in the country (in terms of daily attendance)
It's also one of the best! We live in Wisconsin, but we're closer to St.Paul than we are to Milwaukee so that is how our Minnesota State Fair experience started.
I also was a member of 4-H all of my growing up years and attended and exhibited at the State Fair when I was in high school.
These flowers took my breath away with their beauty! I wish I had that kind of green thumb, aren't they gorgeous!
Some fun fair trivia:
Teddy Roosevelt, gave his famous "Speak Softly and Carry a Big Stick" speech here in 1901.
I always admire the quilts and the amount of work that goes into them!

I love smocked dresses for little girls!

This was part of a centerpiece for this pretty table-scape.
Done by a 2nd grader.
A first grader did this piece!
I was like totally blown away. To think they have only lived 6 or 7 years and they can already do something like that!
More fun fair trivia:
F. Scott Fitzgerald who was from St. Paul wrote his famous poem " A Night at the Fair" in 1928 in tribute to the Minnesota State Fair.
The Minnesota Fair stretches out over 320 acres....no wonder I am so tired. hehe.
