Taste of Minnesota 2007

largecolortaste.jpgMinnesota’s largest free summer festival, the Taste of Minnesota, is in progress RIGHT THIS MINUTE on St. Paul’s Harriet Island Regional Park.

Situated directly across the Mississippi River from the St. Paul skyline, the event features countless food vendors (mmmm…5-8 Grill jucy lucy..), music and fireworks and fantastic people watching.

The fireworks begin each night of the festival around 10:15 p.m., and the final night (Independence Day) more than 15,000 fireworks making the show the longest and largest fireworks display in the state.

This year’s music features your average State Fair washouts like Charlie Daniels, Village People, The Family Stone but also local bands, including favs Tapes ‘N Tapes.

If you weren’t there on June 29, you missed the 20 minutes the Stanley Cup was on display (weird!), but you’ve still got plenty of time to enjoy the festivities.

    i wish more local restaurants were on display at the taste of minnesota, rather than nasty fair food. chicago’s taste puts ours to shame as far as quality.

    I thought that was the whole point. That’s disappointing to hear. I haven’t been in a few years and I was new to Minnesota the one time I did go.

    Maybe the message here is that Minnesota food is fair food.

    I guess my question is how much am I going to need to spend to eat the equivalent of a meal, yet eat at several places?
