Monday, August 27, 2018:   The Great Minnesota Get-Together, also known as the Minnesota State State Fair
Cow milking is a favorite for city kids.  Country kids already know how.
Plenty to eat at the fair.  Just ask Paula or anyone else there.
Imagine that, pickle on a stick.  Who would pay for that?  Lots did.
One exhibitor had furniture made of huge pieces of natural wood.
Machine Age Lamps was there again.  A popular place to buy home decorations made of old hardware.
Horses are a big attraction in the Coliseum.  In this case, Six Horse Hitch.  Beautiful animals. 
One good horse can cost as much as $40,000.  Then you have to feed and care for it.
Who would have thought of selling olives on a stick?
The Cosgrove Stage had dancing of all kinds.
Merchants by the hundreds showed their wares.
Then there was the log rolling......watch it, someone could get wet!
A water mist is great on hot days.  Pronto pups on a stick are good eating too. 
Lots of free bands for entertainment and dancing.

Quote of the day:     This is an amazing place.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
