Every day of the Fair, at 2 p.m., a parade of sorts criss-crosses the fairgrounds. It always includes this train for tots to ride in, a few mascots and showy characters on stilts, a few marching bands, a BIG cow, real horses, and other assorted daily additions. Hey, who doesn't love a parade? It's a tradition!

No parade is complete without a few bands. On our last trip to the Fair, we happened to sit down for a rest right in front of the spot where the University of Minnesota marching band was lining up and warming up for the daily parade! It was free entertainment for sure!
