Minnesota State Fair featured on 'The View' July 4


Mark your calendar and be prepared to set your television to mute during any excessive shouting matches: ABC's The View will be talking about the Minnesota State Fair this Fourth of July weekend.

[jump] The popular talk show contacted fair representatives earlier this month looking to feature a fair food unique to the Great Minnesota Get-Together. Rather than pick obvious standbys like cheese curds, cookies, or pronto pups, the program invited Tim Weiss of Giggles' Campfire Grill to showcase his walleye cakes on the show, which tapes in New York City.

The segment will include Food Network's Marc Summers, host Sherri Shepperd, and executive producer Bill Geddie. New Northwoods salad on-a-stick (mozzarella, basil, cherry tomatoes on a bed of wild rice) will also be featured.

The Minnesota State Fair-themed interview will air this Monday, July 4 at 10 a.m. on ABC. For more info, visit (be prepared for screaming women and dramatic announcer voice set at volume 10 if you click the link).
