Minnesota State Fair Starts Thursday

Posted: Updated:
The annual event known as The Great Minnesota Get-Together starts Thursday -- it's the Minnesota State Fair in Falcon Heights.

Gates open at 10 a.m. August 21, and the fair runs through Labor Day. The first day of the fair is "Thrifty Thursday," where many events are at discounted prices.

Wednesday night, University of Minnesota student Jeni Haler was crowned the 61st Princess Kay of the Milky Way at the State Fairgrounds. Her first official duty will be to sit for nearly six hours on the opening day to have her likeness sculpted from a 90-pound block of butter.
