Canine Adventure at Minnesota State Fair

Dog Show at Minnesota State Fair

You got it, right?

I shot this photo during the extreme stunts canine show happened on Labor Day, just few days back, in Minneapolis at Minnesota State Fair. There was some amazing stunts performed by dogs, like jugglery with Frisbees, jumping in the water, catching the flying objects, swirling and lot more. This photo is one of my favorites and hence, for the challenge. How much of adventure this dog must had, apart from his trainer! (Another photo depicting fun with a bird in Australia)

Annual Minnesota State Fair takes place in the twin cities of Minneapolis & Saint Paul. Held every year towards the end of the summer, this is one of the largest and best-attended agricultural and educational entertainment events in USA. This year, during the twelve days of fun and frolic at the fair, which generally ends on the Labor Day, there was a record attendance of little less than 2 million visitors. That sums up why its also referred as “The Great Minnesota Get-Together”. Minnesota’s finest agriculture, art and industry are on grand display. Lots of contests to participate in, and lots of hearts to be won!

Apart from delicious food, there are plenty of adventurous rides, Live music shows all throughout the day, lots of shopping, international bazaar where products from various countries are on sale and artists from those countries perform, daily parade by school children, and plenty of entertainment. Not to forget the variety of animals, brought from all over the state, that participate in this fair. That includes the horse show and the extreme canines stunt dog show.
