Bags, also known as bean bag toss, is a nickname for Cornhole, a game originating in Ohio. The game requires two boards with a hole in them spaced approximately 30 feet apart. You then throw bean bags (or corn filled bags) towards the boards, with the goal of getting them in the hole. You score 3 points for getting a bag in the hole, and 1 point on the board. Teams are 2 people, and they stand on opposite sides. You subtract the difference between the team totals for each round. Game ends at 21 points.

The young woman who serves as Minnesota's state dairy princess wears the title of Princess Kay of the Milky Way, a name selected in a Department of Agriculture contest over fifty years ago. Princess Kay is crowned each August the night before the opening of the Minnesota State Fair, and she makes appearances not only during the Fair's 12-day run, but all year long. She is generally the daughter of dairy farmers. While at the fair, both Princess Kay and the runner-ups sit in a refrigerator in the Empire Commons building and have a replica of their head sculpted out of butter.
