official Fair merchandise available to public is typically not the most trendy looking stuff. However, designers did a good job creating face masks, along with a gaiter. You can get a face covering featuring Fairchild, one of the two mascots for the Fair, for $12. They're also selling a three-pack of more simplistic masks for $20. Face coverings are available in adult and youth sizes.
Starting Thursday, August 13, candidates will be on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds to get their likeness carved out of a 90 pound block of butter. It's a Minnesota State Fair tradition that draws thousands of onlookers.
