Summer’s official closing party took place this past Labor Day as the Minnesota State Fair came to its conclusion. I spent the final day of the fair with 170,000+ of my new friends enjoying the perfect weather, the food, the animals, the rides, the entertainment, and the people watching. One of the oldest rides, and in my opinion one of the simplest rides, is the Giant Slide. Climb up the stairs, sit on a mat, and slide all the way down to the bottom. No flashing lights, no blaring music, no mechanical anything; it’s simple, it’s fun, and attracts people of all ages. It’s a chance for adults to be kids again and for kids to be amazed at the adults around them having fun! This cutout was meant for someone to put their face in, but it became the perfect frame for all the fun and laughter that was going on behind it on the Giant Slide. Wheeeeeeeee!
