Chris’ High Flyer Chalk Mural 8/2019

The end of summer. I hate to see my favorite season go, but with that brings one of the greatest festivals that exists - the Minnesota State Fair. For the 12 days leading up to Labor Day you can revel in all that this great state have to offer. Food, Beer, terrible MN wine, learn about bees, see some amazing seed art, witness baby farm animals being born, check out the biggest boar in the state, see a parade, marvel at the draft horses, there’s a Llama fashion show, wonder how some dude manages to grow a 900 lb pumpkin, witness some poor kid puking on the Flipper, get fleeced on some carnival games, check out live music all day every day, catch up on what the 4-H kids have been up to, get up close to the most beautiful chickens you have ever seen, get caught up with what's the good word in high-school fashion flip off all the racists in the Trump booth, see Bernie Sanders crush it, vote on your favorite work of art in the art building, make your dad’s day by checking out the old tractors, do you even skate, bro? Well you can at the fair. See what we got up to. .

Giant Ferris Wheel. I’m scared of height so don’t ask me what is like.
