Around this time of year, there is an Irish Fair held on Harriet Island in St. Paul. They have music and other festivities later on in the days, but we like to go in the mornings to look at the merchants. It is also always fun to go look at the Dogs of Ireland display. This is one of the few places that you can actually see a gigantic Irish Wolfhound in person, along with some other unique dogs. Here are a few pictures I took from the two days we went.
It is nice to wander around the grounds just as the shops are opening. There are good views of the St. Paul Skyline from the river, and some of the largest trees I have seen in Minnesota.
This is one of the last photos I took on the first day we went. It was starting to get busier.
I took both of these the second day. There wasn’t much new to photograph at the fair itself, but we found a spot up a hill that provided an overview of the fair and a skyline view of St. Paul itself.
