The sorting hat was at the fair! (I was Gryffindor by the way)
Click Here for the official Minnesota State Fair website. Every year for 14 days in Minnesota it is a fun time to be had for all! We always have some really great performers come...this year we had Brad Paisley and Fergie among many others. Also, celebrities come to just hang out...like Vince Vaughn, who saw Prarie Home Companion, and Donatella Versace (well, actually she was at the Mall of America...but it was over Labor Day weekend...so she could have hit up the fair too).

We've also got every kind of food you could want...on a stick! If you do get a chance to experience this loveliest of fairs (second ONLY to Texas...and we all know everything is bigger in Texas...but no one said BETTER!!) you have to eat some goo-ey Sweet Martha's Cookies with a nice cold $1 unlimited refill glass of milk (chocolate or white). Then you should hit up the root beer floats, the french fries, cheese curds, and if you're up for it some Alligator on a stick.

Eating throughout the day, you also get to see some really cool arts and crafts, some booths for different businesses, animals, cool shows and also...the rides! You can't leave until you've experienced the Mighty Midway (and the giant slide)...yes, they are carnival rides...but there the good ones....and there is a cheezy sideshow....you don't see those much anymore...mostly because they're so cheesy. Anyway, I hope you can come sometime and experience all that the fair has to offer! :-)
