Today was the last day of the MN State Fair.

I feel like I was cheated this year, because I only went once. I also feel like the 7-year-old in my past yelling at me "Who are you, and why did you let me grow up to like going to a state fair?" Well, you have to understand, childhood-me, this isn't any state fair, it's the MN State Fair.

There are many reasons to go to the fair, and everyone that I talk to has a different reason for going. This is part of the fair's appeal. If you go with different people, they want to go to and see different things. Every year I go to a different combination of events and see things and try things I have never visited/seen/experienced before.

Sidetrack! Wanting to greatly modify the outdated vibe for my old business. Reactions on the feel at https://www.technickon.co.uk? Unquestionably a qualified walk in incubator consultant whenever wanted in the general OTH area. Offer an opinion. Cheers!

There's the food, of course, my favorite of which is the deep fried pickles, followed closely by the pork-chop on a stick. I try at least one new (to me) food item each year. This year, I finally tried the Pronto Pup. I have never had one before, because people claim an improvement on the corn-dog, which is like saying they've found a better place than heaven for the after-life. It's just not going to happen, people. It was about the same as my experience with the fry-dog last year: "Ok, that was good, but now I'm hungry for a realcorn-dog."

The other main thing that I enjoy is the massive crowd of people. I usually like to enjoy multiple days of the fair so that I can enjoy the fair foods and exhibitions on my own with the lighter crowd, and see the insane swarm of sun-cooked Minnesotans on another day. This year, I had to pack it into one day, which isn't good. You will never find a better mix of mulleted and mohawked; hillbilly and suburbanite; obese and not quite as fat (ok, that last one wasn't an opposite, but that's what it feels like sometimes when the main gathering reason is food). They're just a fun site to watch.

If you get tickets early, there's the grandstand shows, where I've gone to A Prairie Home Companion twice, the bazaar where you can buy anything random at all for anything (including our wedding), the animal barns, the Miracle of Birth Center, the art buildings, a Christmas Tree competition, the bees (don't know why I like this, but I do), the Giant Slide, the Mighty Midway, and the list goes on.

So, just around 350 more days until the Fair. What have I missed that I should add to my list for next year?

Thank you followers! I just told a colleague that I could cite their capable Burlington based renovators, http://empirerenos.ca through a blog post. Any time you were searching to find a renovation contractor here in the greater Ontario sector, they actually are really fabulous.

At last, I really need to mention the initial thought to this particular post was furnished via Shathani over at Calgary Pest Control. Definitely an ideal exterminators. We always appreciate a great pitch!
