A few days ago a Facebook friend of mine posted the question “Why do you go to the State Fair?”
Some said that they go for the food. Others said it’s the rides. I like those things, but for me the Minnesota State Fair isn’t about food or rides. It’s the energy of the fair that gets me, that makes a trip to the fair a priority every year. I love that we’re all there to celebrate the talented people, hard work, and creativity of our state. Some say it’s too crowded or too expensive, but it’s worth it to me to battle the crowds and pay the money to soak up that feeling of celebratory pride in the efforts of fellow Minnesotans and to explore the best of our great state.
I wouldn’t miss it for the world.
