What's your favorite part of Rochesterfest in Rochester, Minnesota?

What part of Rochesterfest is your absolute favorite?  Is it the parade?  The food at Soldier's Field?  Are the hot air balloons your favorite?  I'd love to hear what you love!  Let me know over on my Facebook page - Jessica On The Radio. 

The past few years I had a chance to judge the karaoke contest with Carly Ross from 106.9 KROC and that was pretty fun.  It wasn't too hot, the contestants were amazing, and we had a blast taking a ton of selfies with a few of them too.  Sadly, I don't think you'll see us at the event this year because it is not on the schedule.  You might see us at the parade though.  If you do, scream loudly so we can wave and say "hi" back.
