FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (WCCO) — It’s always great to be at the Great Minnesota Get-Together, but what could make it even better? How about a #Top10WxDay!
The sun was shining — but not too hot — with a gentle breeze and low humidity at the Fairgrounds Wednesday. Fair-goers were enjoying the weather, including the WCCO team.
Jennifer Mayerle was at the Creative Activities building, where she learned about the forgotten story of the circus animal models that have wowed fair-goers for decades.
Meanwhile, Frank continued our tour of the Agrilympics as he tried his hand at wool-packing — emphasis on “tried.”
And on set, we got to see some amazing feats of strength from Mama Lou! Did you know she can crush an apple with her bicep and tear a phonebook in half with her bare hands?
And don’t forget the food! We sample some top notch cuisine from Shanghaied Henri’s International Tacos, Ball Park Cafe and Mancini’s.
