Minnesota Children’s Book Festival

We went to Red Wing, MN for the 17th Annual Minnesota Children’s Book Festival. It was from 12:00 to 5:00 and was busy. There were activities for kids and adults and was a fun afternoon. Parking and admission were free, which is always a plus. This was held at the Anderson Center, which is a legacy from Dr. Alexander P. Anderson, who was the inventor of the process for making Puffed Wheat and Puffed Rice.  Story telling in the Tower.   Yes, that's a live tarantula.

There was also a craft show at the National Guard Armory (also free). Not quite sure about the dinosaur walking around it though.

I’ve got a few more pictures, plus copies of the brochures from the Book Festival, which you can click here to see.
