MN State Fair 2015

Today was Fair Day. We arrived around 8am. Kate had to leave at noon; the rest of us stayed until the Gaelic Storm show finished at 10:30pm. We ate a lot! Here’s the ol’ list, in order of consumption. We didn’t get two footlongs like we normally do, but we tried a lot of new things so I think it’s a fair trade.

  • mini cinnamon rolls with milk
  • mini donuts
  • footlong hot dog
  • apple dumpling with ice cream
  • samples of Peace coffee
  • 3 types of jerky: cheddar, maple, & BBQ
  • corn fritz
  • snicker salad
  • chilled bread pudding
  • giant turkey sandwich
  • all-you-can-drink milk, both white & chocolate
  • chicken samosas
  • frozen cider
  • 3 beer flights: darker, belgian, & brewpub (Kate left after flights)
  • fried green tomatoes
  • raspberry mocha frappe
  • ribbon fries with cheese & sour cream
  • strawberry lemonade
  • deep fried candy bar
  • samples of cinnamon butter
  • lobster rolls with chips & iced tea
  • ice cream from the dairy building (this is when we stop for a while to rest/nap)
  • cream puffs
  • sweet corn
  • 1919 root beer
  • s’mores beer
  • maple bacon beer
  • leinie’s harvest patch shandy
  • cheese curds

I had my iPod with, running its built-in pedometer. I started it after we finished our cinnamon rolls, and stopped it at about 6:30 when we sat down to claim seats for the concert. In that time, we walked 18,750 steps. Success! Photos can be found on Instagram.
