In Minneapolis on Sunday, August 24, 1958, Dale wrote, “I drove the Dodge to the State Fair at 8 a.m. to get a place to park. Walked around, saw machinery hill, saw horse-power thresher in action. Rest of the family came in the afternoon. I went to the races. Had dinner and supper at fairgrounds. Helen walked through livestock buildings in the afternoon. Pretty cool day, high was only 66°.” Below: the AgStar arena at the Minnesota state fair.
