MN State Fair 2013

We try to mix it up from year to year and alternate between the State Fair and the Renaissance Festival. Both are great, but they don't tend to change much from year to year, so I think going to each every year is a little much. I'm almost bordering on every other year as being a bit much...

Anyways, we went over to the wonderful MN State Fair after work on Monday night. It may or may not have been my birthday and there happened to be a band I thoroughly enjoy playing at a free stage. *cough* HANSON! *cough* You may or may not have seen the "sneak peak" over on my instagram.

Last time I took a picture like above, the street was PACKED. It was probably because it was a Monday night and insanely hot out...

For the first time ever, we did a skyride. We bought round trip tickets thinking we would just ride all the way around. Well, we got off at the other end noticing that that was close to where we entered the state fair and walked back to where we got on the sky ride thinking we could just take it back the same direction at the end of the night.

It's always interesting to see something you've seen plenty of times from a new perspective.

The giant slide from above. Something I haven't done since I was a kid.

One of the best things at the fair, CORN! We also enjoyed cheese curds, some Leinie's beer, and potato skins. Nothing too crazy... 

We definitely waited too long to go over to the state. It was crazy packed... We just stood in the back and enjoyed from afar.

Sadly these were the best photos I got, which were both from my phone.

We didn't stay too late. I had to get up early for work and we'd already had a long day... plus it was SO HOT even after dark. 

I have a similar photo of this guy from last time we were there that I took during the day. 

We took the skyride back the same direction and I got this photo.

Really is was a pretty low key evening. Nothing too crazy, just thought I would share some of the photos. Ok, and to maybe brag that I got to see Hanson live on my birthday. For those of you wondering who they are... And for those of you that do...
