Taste of MN Main Stage Going Up

taste main stage

What appears to be the main stage for the Taste of Minnesota is going up right inside the Carver County Fair grounds main gate.

This is much closer to homes than the grandstands and locals better have their ear plugs ready. The good news though is its pointed away from homes.

Rides & food vendors are also getting setup. I can almost smell the food!
