The weekend is over, and Monday isn’t quite over yet, but thankfully most of us have a three day weekend coming!! I took Friday off last week to celebrate a friend’s birthday at the Minnesota State Fair. Over the last few years I have experienced the fair with different people in tow, a boyfriend, one close friend, and this year with a group of 9. The benefit to a large group is you can have a bite of almost everything! But it also means you’ve got 9 different ways to explore the same event.
- Bus in. Seriously, do not park. The best part is, you’ll be dropped off at the Blue Barn, perfect for grabbing your first food or drink as you acclimate to the craziness.
- Stand in Line, Patiently. If you’ve made your way to the Minnesota State Fair, accept the fact that everyone else in Minnesota is also here. The deep fried grilled cheese from O’Gara’s is 100% worth the wait. (other food is good, but this one is the best).
- Prepare to be there all day long. Don’t give yourself a deadline for when you need to be somewhere else. It will take all the fun out of it.
What are your fair rules? Do you go once a year, every couple years, or multiple times each year? (I would go again this year, but I’d want to check out more of the buildings).
