Did anyone else witness the magic in the MN State Fair horticultural building last year?

I can only hope to make it to the great Minnesota get-together this year to see what’s in store. Between our wedding next weekend and honeymoon following it may prove to be impossible.. but that sounds like a challenge to me 😈🎡🍟🍭

This little piggie went to market, this little piggie stayed home, and this little piggie went “wee wee wee” all the way to the Minnesota state fair! Almost my favorite time of the year! Come check these little cuties out at the Foci booth in West End Market. I’ll be there almost every day and I love visitors, especially if there is a snack involved.
