To celebrate Labor Day (whatever that means) we headed down to the "Great Minnesota Get-Together" for the final day of its 2-week run.
Even though I'm not a big fan of ginormous crowds and the parking hassle associated with them, the State Fair here is very easy to navigate. Two miles in any direction of the main gate will get you free park-n-ride parking lots. The one we used last night took only 10 minutes to get us from our car to the fairground. Yay!
I took a ton of pictures as usual, but instead of boring you with my family photo album, I'm instead going to have a little fun with some of the signage I spotted throughout the day.
For example, is this really the best name for a restaurant?
And I hardly think a breaded hot dog constitutes "a banquet on a stick"
With all the purple nurples my brother gave me as a kid, I have no interest in anything that sounds even remotely close to titty twister... especially Texas-sized ones!
Hmm, I like a crunchy ice cream as much as the next guy, but no thank you to this tooth buster.
I took this picture especially for my friend Janna, who just spent a week experimenting as a vegetarian. I'm sure she would have loved this place, even if "veggie" was spelled wrong.
And finally... kids love the state fair and and there are a LOT of things you can do there. But come on - you'd have to be one evil parent to lure your toddler down here for the promise of cotton candy and midway rides, and then toss him through this door for a quick stabbing of needles.
