The Minnesota State Fair is a glorious cacophony of chintzy souvenirs, mammalia and fry grease. Mostly I go for the fry grease because let’s be honest: at no other time of year will a corn dog and deep-fried cheese curds taste like this. Bring me.
The ag building was picture-plentiful. I mostly couldn’t stop trying out different Insta filters. I am enamored with how organized and Midwest Americana everything looked. Plus, all those prize-winning cakes in a row. What if you had the job of State Fair cake sampler?? Obviously my dream job.
