Minnesota State Fair Part 1

One of the things I look forward to on summer is STATE FAIR!!! Yes! I love State Fair! The ambience is so alive and busy; seeing other families and group of friends hanging out and having a good time is wonderful, and it makes me feel like a kid and I enjoy the moment more. My husband I love trying new food from different stands (yes, we left the house hungry! LOL)  and rides, although this year we have not tried any rides/games because our son is so active running around the fair and does not like to stay at one place, we thought we will try on rides when he is a little order. My son’s face is full of excitement when he saw rides and toys for sale! I just love hanging out there. We started going to State Fair 5 years ago when my husband and I just got married that year, and I really loved it! It reminds me of the little carnival night games (smaller version) at my grandma’s place when they have their yearly festivities in Philippines. But we never get to go there every year because of work or no time. So last year when my son was 1, we went back and we decided to make this as our family tradition every summer; something for our child/kids to look forward to every summer. That’s why when I saw a raffle for State Fair tickets I quickly entered and won 4 tickets! That saved us $40($10 per ticket)!!! So, we get to go to State Fair twice this year! Yay!!! We went on a weekend and we can’t wait to go back in few days. There is so much food to try on, and because we’re coming back, we will try the other food we missed! We did not get to take photos of the yummy stuff because we were so pigging out and totally forgot to take pictures ha ha! I will try to take photos on our next trip.


It is so funny, we bought him a cotton candy and he did not like it! LOL So hubby got to eat the whole thing.


As soon as Brayden saw the truck art, he ran to it and played  for a while! 


These goodies are looking yummy! 


In the State Fair, there are a lot of booths of different companies, organizations and even colleges/schools!


So Brayden saw this huge propeller and did not want to leave! Haha 


So we went on a Saturday, and it was super packed (its hard to move around with a kids stroller)! We were always there on weekdays back then so this is our first time coming in on a weekend. And honestly, I think we will stick on weekdays, its less busy and its easy to maneuver around since we will be bringing a stroller.
