Another successful Minnesota mini meetup involved the great Minnesota Get-Together, aka the MN State Fair. We all trickled in through the morning and finally met up after some confusion of where the carosel was. Turns out there are two carosels at the fair. My roommate, Jason, and I arrived first, but at the wrong carosel, and soon we found our way over to the grandstand carosel where Bill (the_Bill) was patiently waiting for us). Not sure what to do first, we decided that the skyscraper ride looked pretty fun. I don't even know how to describe this ride other than it was awesome! And not long enough! Two people are strapped in at one end in seats that flip and the end goes way up top, maybe 200 feet? and around back towards the ground, over and over, frontwards and backwards.
We wandered around through the food booths that selling everything you can think of on a stick, including alligator, cheese, deep-fried candy bars, pork chops, Belgian waffle, ostrich, and pronto pups (of course!). We walked around forever trying to decide what to get. Soon we met up with Michael (moon_over_michael) and his friend Ruby. We continued our search for food but nothing jumped out at me.
After a bunch of walking and not picking up too many free things, we decided to call it a day. We didn't stay for the Backstreet Boys concert.
