The Minnesota State Fair is fast approaching. It starts August 26th and goes to Labor Day. I never miss the postcard exhibits in the Creative Arts Building. I can always find antique and vintage postcards I’ve LOVE to include in my personal collection; especially the real photo ones. I always wonder where they find these scarce postcards. I also visit:
the rabbits (the little ones are sooo cute and soft),
horse barns (I’m going to try and see the miniature horses this year),
flower competitions in the 4-H building (especially the MN State Florist Association displays which usually has a toy train running thru it)
the miracle of birth center (baby animals are soooo darling), butter carvings of the Milky Way Princesses, and of course the milk booth (all you can drink for a buck). Ooooh, almost forgot. My diet can wait; gotta have my Tom Thumb donuts. Yum Yum.
See you there!
