When people mention Springtime, I always go right to the place of newness, or baby animals, new life, things of that nature.  And the festival that brings all of that to you is the "Spring Babies Festival".  This festival happens every year (minus pandemic shutdown time), and it's something every family should probably experience.

Officially called the "Twin Cities Festival - Spring Babies".  The reason it is specified as Spring Babies is because there is also a Fall festival which has a lot of the same things, except the new baby farm animals.

The festival doesn't just have baby farm animals to look at, hold and pet, there are also all of the things you love about almost any festival in Minnesota.  There is festival food like mini donuts, funnel cakes, corn dogs, you know, festival food.  Also, activities for the kids like a giant slide and a maze.
