A representation of the land of 10,000 lakes
The land of 10,000 lakes should actually be called the land of 11,842 lakes - since there are not less than 11,842 that Minnesota has on its territory. And what beautiful lakes they are! One of which is Lake Superior, which is biggest of the Great Lakes in the United States and the biggest reserve of fresh water on the planet ; Lac Itasca also gives life to Lake Mississippi (in Itasca State Park) which is the oldest State Park in Minnesota. This river runs 1,126 km towards Minnesota and towards the Gulf of Mexico. This state also disposes of several thousands of kilometres of rivers.
Minnesota’s economy is primarily supported by agriculture, more particularly by the production of butter and cheese but also by exporting commodities like wood and iron. Tourism and commerce are also two important sources of revenue for this state - all thanks to ‘Bloomington’s Mall of America’, which is the biggest shopping mall in the country (it first opened in 1992). The shopping mall has over 520 boutiques, 50 restaurants, 14 movie theatres, an aquarium (Sealife), an and an amusement park (Nickelodeon Universe).
Minneapolis is not the capital of Minnesota, but is still a very important city. With its numerous museums, operas, theatres, concerts and reputable restaurants, Minneapolis is a dynamic city overflowing with culture ; it has notably accommodated the famous Bob Dylan. Furthermore, it is easy to cruise through its lakes that are located at the heart of the city!
Saint-Paul, its Twin-City, was designed to be its capital and every January, it hosts the Winter Carnival to resemble the real one in Montreal. There are lots of parades, competitions and ice sculptures at this event and it is highly anticipated by its attendees. Minnesota’s state fair usually takes places in Saint-Paul. It the second biggest fair in the country, after Texas’. There are several events and agricultural competitions, concerts, roundabouts and attractions of all sorts. But most importantly, there is tons of cuisine to be taste-tested! These two events, just like Christmas, Easter amongst many others, are all excellent occasions to share and enjoy chocolate.
Chocolate in Minnesota in an unusual form!
There are several records having to do with chocolate that are quite interesting. These records attract a whole lot of people who are passionate about chocolate on all continents, since this ingredient is highly appreciated and is fairly easy to get ahold of. As such, during your Easter celebrations in 2017, the restaurant located in Lake Elmo, Minnesota was also wanting to contribute to the world record book. The owner of the establishment, Joni Marty, went on to create a simply gigantic chocolate egg which weighed 45 kg - this is 32 kg heavier than the preceding record… which was also theirs!
Gigantic projects like these are loved here and require 3 days of intense labour. The shell of the Easter egg was made out of eight layers of white chocolate. Two parts of this creation had to be made separately, before being glued together with dark chocolate. In terms of the surface of this huge chocolate creation, it was decorated and covered with close to 240 chocolate flowers. What a way to attract a curious crowd and to promote the state as well. Make sure to pay Joni a visit next year!
