Used Book Store on Grand Avenue

Loved the map of Minnesota with the big Uff Da on it! It is surrounded by books regarding the area. It's a terrible shot taken with my little point and shoot, but it's all local charm.

Livestock. Don't think it's award winning but I think I captured their best side, don't you?

Massive Crowd Scene at the Food Lines!

Just a few people show up for the Great Minnesota Get Together. Just one or two.

Cheese Curds

Not on a stick but by far one of the most popular staples of the State Fair, or should I say FARE????

While today is officially the last day of the State Fair, I promised you folks 12 days of photos and this only makes day 8 so stay tuned for 4 more days of fair fun!

The Year of SPAM!

Yes, that's right folks! SPAM now has it's very own building at the fair! As if is deserves any less. Deep fried SPAM bites on a stick anyone?

Fair Hair

Also known as a Fair-do, kids young and old can lay down a few bills and walk away with a stunning new look. 2.5 cans of aerosol hairspray per do. So much for the ozone.

The Sky Tower

A few years ago I heard that the fire department was doing rescue training on the Sky Tower because it was a very real possibility that this ancient ride would go KAPUT at the state fair. But I rode it anyway. What a rebel!
