The Minnesota State Fair is a pretty big deal around these parts, but I don't make it every year.
The washington State Fair sucks compared to MN. Just saying.
My dad is tight with the Olson's who run it so I also eat a lot of cookies.
I'm originally from IL, and I like this one way better personally, it's way more chill.
I don't typically run into any red necks. The way to do the MN State Fair is to go early in the morning and get out of there before it gets too packed.I'm originally from IL, and I like this one way better personally, it's way more chill.
I'll trade the corn on the cob for a Dole whip, and there are way less drunk rednecks at this one. You can still get a corn dog or fried candy bar at either
You talking about Stampede in Calgary? I was just in Calgary for a week and went to Stampede. I can tell you it felt like the Texas State fair but with more character. I’m from Dallas and had a lot of people tell me that Calgary has Dallas as their sister city. We did a scavenger hunt for a birthday during Stampede. It was pretty fun.Simple topic really, it's about that time of year when they're around. Do they excite you anymore? Do the rides/fried food turn you off? Is it just a thing you go to with your kids now? I wanna hear all about the fairs in your area.
The fair is basically our city's identitiy, and try as I might, I find less and less reasons to go each year. I've only a passing intrest in the rodeos/Chuckwagons, the vendors are the same year after year, rides/games are the same each time as well. The only thing thats appealing are the bars/pubs around the area which get into the spirit, but even that's losing it's luster.
But since the city's had the fair for over 100 years, it probably wont stop any time soon. Especially since they had a Stranger Things collab this year. But how does your city/county/state do things, fair wise?
