Steele County Fair

This week was the Steele County Free Fair...! This is Minnesota's largest county fair.  It has over 100 food vendors and over 30 rides/games.  With so much to see and do, it's no wonder that the Steele County Free Fair was named "One of the top events in North America".


People in this town actually take off of work for this event...crazy.  We  went the first day it was open, Tuesday, and scoped out the food vendors and ended up with the famous fried Snickers!!!  It was delicious I must say :)  It reminded me of good ole' Tommy Boy...

"Ugh, I can actually hear you getting fatter." [Watching Tommy eat french fries and then squirting ketchup into his mouth

Fried Snickers...YUM

The rest of the week we got to see the exotic petting zoo, all of the show animals, the lumberjack show, pig races, great bands, and a few more fried desserts!  I busted out laughing when I saw a Brahma in the exotic petting zoo!!!!!!!  We asked the owner, "What makes them exotic, that was my high school mascot?" and he said "You don't see them around this must be from Texas."  I said, "Yes sir" with a proud smile :)  

Parker loved all the lights and music!  We can check the fair off our list of things to do up!

We couldn't stop laughing at Parker's expression on this pic!!!

  1. What a crazy week! Brahmas in the exotic animals? Crazy.
    Parker looks adorable. He is getting so big. Can't wait to see him.

  2. Ok....that picture of Parker and Pat is SUPER creepy! He looks like Chucky! Also...there are some pretty cute boys in that picture. This may speed up the flight ticket purchasing process. Just sayin' :)

  3. I've already started background checks and my top ten questions for will speed up the process when you get here :)
