(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.
