You can view some the pictorial highlights in the slideshow. One of my favorite pictures is the butterhead of this year's Princess Kay of the Milky Way (digression: instead of a Queen, the Minnesota State Fair has Princess Kay of the Milky Way and her court. Each day of the fair, one of the Fair Royalty has her bust carved from a 90 lb block of butter. Don't ask why, just accept it.) One of the wedding activities involved taking a cruise on the Mississippi River. The reason that Minneapolis is Minneapolis is because of Saint Anthony Falls. Said falls powered many mills, so in the neighborhood of the falls there are many old factories that were originally there to utilize the power of falling water. I took a few pictures of the giant Ain't We Cool factory signs as we cruised up and down the river.
