The Winter Carnival's ice sculpture display is moving to the Fairgrounds, and in true coronavirus fashion, turned into a drive-thru format.
My experience from the Minnesota State Fair Food Parades, held in August and October 2020.
The Minnesota State Fair announced that its extremely-popular Food Parade will return to the State Fairgrounds October 1 - 4 and 8 - 11, 2020.
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.
The 2020 Minnesota State Fair may be canceled, but State Fair officials and business owners are coming up ways you can get your fix of the Great Minnesota Get Together.
I stopped by the Fairgrounds to purchase two sleeves of cups, and the process is extremely easy. There was no line when I visited, although there was a steady flow of customers.
There's one thing you must download to your phone before heading out to the Minnesota State Fair.
The staff who plan the Minnesota State Fair know the 12-day event extremely well. So what foods do they eat during the Great Minnesota Get Together?
