Not even a tornado will stop us from trying new foods at Taste of Faribault!

The Taste of Faribault kicked off extremely well yesterday! This was my first Taste of Faribault and the number of people that were there AT 5:30 when it started was crazy! But I don't blame them, it's a great event.

Everyone was going around, trying new foods from all different companies when we all got a tornado warning alert sent to our phones. Great! But we all continued to eat and I continued to interview various business until we were told the tornado was heading towards Faribault. Ohhhh boy.

So we all congregated in the bathrooms and hung out until the storm was over! There was no damage at the Faribault Legion but one gust of wind could have seriously changed that since the tornado hit so close by.

Oh, did I mention the power went out? Yep, it was quite the experience at my first Taste of Faribault! But I still loved it because even though some businesses were leaving, people were going around by phone light (after the storm passed of course) to continue trying foods. It was awesome!

Do you have pictures from the storm or of any storm damage? Share them with us.
