The Minnesota State Fair
We were accompanied by visiting Ambassador royalty and a few other pageant beauty queens. We couldn’t help but giggle at the little girls who had their hair done up my “Fair-Do!” After lots of backcombing, some colored hair spray-paint, and a bunch of glitter, these kids end up looking like little troll dolls. The only thing missing is the belly button jewel! It is so cute though; I secretly wish I could get my hair done!
My favorite was the “Luminarium”. It was an inflatable sculpture that was modeled after architecture found in Muslim and Hindu temples. It took the artist 25 years to create. It was like stepping into a maze. The walls were rubbers like a thick balloon. There was southing tranquil music and lights beaming out of intricate designs on the ceilings and dome shaped rooms. They encouraged you to take off your shoes, lay down and take in the atmosphere designed to make you feel like you stepped into a different world. It sure was a big change from the crowded, hot, noisy mobs of people outside enjoying the fair. I left feeling like I had just woken up form a nap. I was energized. It was an incredible and massive piece of artwork.
I ended the night by checking out the Dairy building. A friend of mine was getting her head carved In butter! So cool! I wonder what she ill do with it…? Then I hit the amusement park rides and games. I look forward to the 2013 fair and all the delicious treats and oddities it will bring!
