For everything we love about the Minnesota State Fair — ridiculous food on sticks, adorable baby animals, fresh-squeezed lemonade mixed with smuggled grain alcohol — the people watching is the undeniable highlight. Throw together a hundred thousand Minnesotans from all corners of the state and you'll get a diverse melting pot of mostly white weirdos.
If crowds and large-scale Americana aren’t your thing, you'll be missing out on the primo gawking. Fortunately, the super awesome blog T-Shirts of the Minnesota State Fair allows the lazy and agoraphobic a glimpse at the crowd — or at least what they’re wearing. The blog captures the highs (and lows) of fairgoers’ T-shirt slogans. Should you spot an awesome T-shirt in the cheese curd line this weekend, snap a pic and send it here.
Heading into the fair’s final weekend, here are the 10 best T-shirt sightings so far.
