#OnlyInMN - Sights, sounds and smells of the Minnesota State Fair

For twelve days at the end of every summer, the entire state of Minnesota (and part of western Wisconsin) congregates in St Paul, at the Great Minnesota Get Together, a.k.a. - The Minnesota State Fair.

Here at NSA, we have a number of fanatical fair goers, who never miss this annual event. Everyone has their favorite foods, exhibits, and rides at the Mighty Midway. Here are a few shots from Melissa's 2017 trip to the Fair.

 More Minnesotan than outdoor hockey... almost.

The fair closes after Labor Day. So if you haven't been, take the time this weekend and visit one of our state's finest treasures! Get yourself a Pronto Pup, and some Mini Donuts.... and Beer-gharita to wash it down.
