Wow! Love the colors of the buildings downtown, and the big domed building. Was Hastings the former state capital?

Looks like an interesting town but the color scheme was a bit much. I like the festival, we have something similar in Vegas, Rockabilly Festival with all the classic cars.

Thanks! No, Hastings was never the state capital; the "big domed building" you're referring to is the old Dakota County Courthouse, which is now Hastings City Hall.

I actually think the colors keep it looking interesting, especially in the winter when everything else is grey and covered in snow. Hastings has a classic car show every Saturday during the warmer months, and it's wildly popular. Being a person who couldn't care less about cars, I couldn't tell you why!

A bit much if you ask me and the photos were not taken during the winter season. The pink shade is very evident in the photos but still an interesting town and festival.

I find it very ironic that someone from Las Vegas is commenting on a town's color scheme as being "too much".

I see someone cannot handle a bit of constructive criticism.

The population is just under 20,000; it's a suburban community about 20 miles southeast of Minneapolis–St. Paul, Minnesota.

Is Hastings in the same general environs as Stillwater? It seems there are lots of great river towns in your area.
