Everything On A Stick at #mnstatefair

If you forgot, your Twitter feed reminded you. The Great Minnesota Get-Together kicked off yesterday and is complete with 40 new foods, 11 new frozen treats and 2 new rides on the Mighty Midway. Prepare to hear about all of the crazy foods indulged by your friends and co-workers over the next 12-day binge. Also, don’t get your feathers ruffled. The poultry exhibits have been canceled because of the bird flu outbreak. So that’s comforting.

This is the first completed project of the Bikeways for Everyone campaign. Well done, City of Minneapolis.
