It's that time of the year again and the Minnesota State Fair is in full swing. Most of your favorite venders are back this year. You may notice some nominal price increases on some things this year. Looks like most prices are up about a dollar this year.

You will be required to pass through a metal detector at the fair gate and all bags will be checked. All in an effort to make everyone's fair experience as safe a possible.

Weather Forecast 

The forecast looks like pretty good fair weather. As always there may be a couple of days where showers are possible but otherwise, the weather looks optimal for fair fun. Doesn't appear that there will be those almost unbearable hot & humid days like there have been in past years. Weekdays are recommended.
