I can't believe that it's that time of year again. Preparations for the Minnesota State Fair are in high gear for all the vendors. Here at Northwood, we are no exception. We are in the process of making the final decisions on which buildings and furniture will be displayed at our fair booth. I must say, this year's booth will be one you don't want to miss. As we go through the setup routine I will be posting pictures of our booth to our facebook page.
Here are a few quick notes on the sales we will be offering this year.
- All the Poly Outdoor Furniture will be 10% off. For orders placed during the fair, delivery time will be approximately 4-5 weeks following the fair
- All Hickory Indoor Furniture will also be 10% off regular pricing.
- Our Storage Sheds and other Outdoor Buildings will be on sale as follows:
- $100 off all 8’ wide buildings
- $200 off all 10’ wide buildings
- $300 off all 12’ wide buildings
Come visit us at our booth (located just inside gate #2 at the north end of Cooper Street) to take advantage of these sales.
Ok, enough business talk! Now on to the more important things, FOOD!!
The porkchop on a stick is my favorite food at the fair, with Sweet Martha's cookies coming in at a close second.
Of course all the regular state fair food will be available, corn dogs, fresh cut fries, and just about any food you can imagine on a stick. However, every year the state fair foundation releases a list of new foods that will be at the fair. I’m not near brave enough to try everything they come up with, but there are a few on this years list that I just may need to find. Click here for the complete list of new foods.
Be sure to check out the State fair smartphone app. It offers a great way to find your location on the fairgrounds, and it is handy for finding food and entertainment near by. You can also find state fair maps on the website.
With that, we'll wrap up this update. We are really excited for this year's fair, and we hope to see you all there.
