AS I SEE IT
By Neal A. Shipman
This past weekend, Lisa and I made our annual pilgrimage to the North Dakota State Fair as it wrapped up its 9-day run in Minot. While there was no fair last year due to COVID-19, it was clearly obvious that North Dakotans were more than ready to get back on the fairgrounds and enjoy pigging out at the food booths, enjoying the carnival rides and free entertainment stages, as well as visiting all of the exhibit halls.
While there are those that love the State Fair for its nightly concerts, passing through all of the livestock barns and the 4-H and Open Class exhibits, that’s not what drives me to the fair. It’s the food. Pure and simple.
