Great Minnesota Get Together

No August in Minnesota is complete without a trip or two to the Great Minnesota Get Together twelve days of great Minnesota Fun. The fair began in 1859, a year after Minnesota received it's statehood and has been held in it's current location in Falcon Heights since 1885. In the twelve days that the fair is open almost 170 baby animals are born in the Miracle of Birth Center. It amazes me how each year new attendance records are set.

All the award winning honey lined up all pretty

I love how the state fair is brimming with Minnesota pride from the Education building supporting Minnesota Colleges, crafts and home goods, to produce. Last year I enjoyed tasting Minnesota wines, and this year enjoyed Minnesota apples. You never know what you will find at the state fair.

The dairy building is always a fun stroll with the latest Princess Kay butter head to all of the other princesses.
