One of the best parts of summer? All of the different fairs! The Head of the Lakes Fair is one of them and organizers just announced details for this year's big spectacle.

Speaking of fun summer fairs, the Minnesota State Fair just announced their new foods for this year. The fun new foods range from pickle pizza to cake on a stick. Some of them are definitely meant for Instagram posts rather than enjoyment. Ha!

There are other fun summer events to look forward to aside from these two fairs. The Duluth Airshow is back in the area this month. They have added a few new additions to the lineup prior to the show as well.

Concerts have also returned full force this summer, with Jake Owen headlining a show at Bayfront Festival Park in June. He absolutely killed it! Travis Tritt also took the stage at AMSOIL Arena recently. It has been a great summer so far.
