We know that some people are looking for other things besides the Minnesota State Fair at this time during the year, so I have done some searching for you and have found some great options.
This offer from the train museums in town is by far one of my favorite offers this summer. For train enthusiasts and history-lovers, this is perfect!

Eileen Beha, author of the celebrated Tango: Tale of an Island Dog, is back with her newest book, and we’re throwing a party! In The Secrets of Eastcliffe-by-the-Sea, a charming sock monkey named Throckmorton reunites a fractured family, in this simply remarkable novel in the tradition of The Velveteen Rabbit and The Penderwicks. We’ll hear about this new book, do sock monkey crafts and activities, and have refreshments and tons of fun!
