(ABC 6 News) - Tuesday, the Minnesota State Fair announced "Kickoff to Summer at the Fair," which will run from May 27-31 at the State Fairgrounds.

This new walk-around event is five days of food, brews, live music, shopping and family fun at the iconic Minnesota State Fairgrounds.

"Last year's Food Parades were a big hit, but they were also very limited," State Fair General Manager Jerry Hammer said. "This year, we're very happy to bring people back in a walk-around environment to enjoy a slice of the fair."

A lottery process will be used to randomly select people for a chance to buy tickets. Registration for that lottery process is open through 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, May 6.

Tickets are $12.50 each, and children under the age of 4 are able to enter for free. Each ticket sold will be for a specific date and time slot, with a limit of 10,000 being sold for each time slot, in accordance with current state guidelines, event organizers said.

Guests will be required to follow current health and safety guidelines, including wearing masks, and people eating or drinking will be required to be seated.

A list of entertainment can be found here. More details on the event are available online.
