Taste of Minnesota



This is as close to Taste of Minnesota as I care to get. According to the organizers of this festival, Minnesota tastes like cheap carnival food served out of greasy roach coaches. I know for a fact Minnesota has many wonderful restaurants which serve delicious dishes. Some of them are even healthy and made without grease. Too bad this festival can't recognize these local business owners and help promote their restaurants. The best thing about Taste are the nightly fireworks they shoot off of a tiny island in the Mississippi. You can see thme for miles around and I don't have to get anywhere near the festival to see them. I love watching fireworks almost as much as I love good Minnesota food.

Every city has a "Taste of..." these days, although the biggest from the standpoint of both number of patrons and participating restaurants is probably Chicago. One gets a much better "taste" at the Minnesota State Fair, plus the prices are probably lower for what you get. Is that a shot of Harriet Island we're seeing?

Yes, Paul. It is Harriet Island. I've never been to Chicago, but I'd guess their "Taste" is far, far better than ours. Thanks for stopping by Picture St. Paul! We love our readers!

Thanks for all the wonderful pics & posts!

Grew up in MN, never went to The Taste. But I did get food poisoning at the Festival of Nations! :)
