The Minnesota State Fair is quite a sign to see. There are acres and acres of display buildings, random food on a stick, and events. While we didn't get Journey tickets, they were playing the night we were there and we could hear them from by the stadium.
Highlights of the fried crap on a stick we ate/saw (and other foods): bucket 'o cookies (we just got the mega cone) deep fried fruit on a stick (actually, pretty bad) fried pickles pickles on a stick lefse (potato dough with cinnamon sweetness rolled up in it) fried cheese on a stick ginormous hot dogs mineapple pie on a stick nut rolls pork chop on a stick alligator on a stick corn on the cob (drenched in buttery goodness) fried rice balls deep fried beer and of course, a local favorite, deep fried cheese curd.
Even though we walked around a lot, I'm pretty sure all the crap we ate cancelled out any benefit the walk might have provided.
