Minnesota State Fair Holds Big Sing Along

Welcome to THIS IS AMERICA in VOA Special English. I'm Barbara Klein.

And I'm Christopher Cruise. This week, we visit the Minnesota State Fair for its Giant Sing Along. We also learn about a program that helps young people get involved with nature. And later, we hear about a Pakistani woman who is one of the top chefs in New York City.

The northern state of Minnesota is home to one of the nation's largest and oldest state fairs. It has farm animals, home-made foods, carnival rides and, for the second summer, a Giant Sing Along.

Farmers demonstrate equipment, including old tractors...

And in an educational building called "The Miracle of Birth," crowds can see baby chicks, big-eared, newborn pigs, and even newborn lambs learning how to walk.

It is all part of the tradition at the Minnesota State Fair.

A new addition to the fair is the Giant Sing Along, where nearly one hundred people gathered recently to sing together.

High school student Rachel Fadina and her friends performed the Michael Jackson song, Thriller.

RACHEL FADINA: "I like how you can just sing however you want, and mess around with your friends or whatever, and, it's just fun."

Rachel and her friends like the sing-along, but would any of them like to sing on their own?
