9/1 Fair Insider
Twin Cities Live’s local guy about town is also a walking state fair information booth! Mike Marcotte, our Fair Insider, shares his tips to make your trip to the fair amazing.
Deals on Water:
Bring a water bottle into the fairgrounds. There are water bottle refill stations located in the Coliseum, Eco Experience, and the restrooms south of Kidway on the sest side of Cooper Street
- Don’t pay more than $1.75 for 20 ounces of water – the booth selling Rice Krispie Treats across the street from Ye Old Mill has the best deal.
- Don’t forget you can fill a cup up at the KSTP building. You can also win a year’s supply of Culligan drinking water!
Apple Popsicles for $1.50 in the Ag-Hort Building (Minnesota grown apples available for purchase too!)
- Frozen Grapes from Bayou Bob’s
Best Shaded Places to Sit:
Family Fair at Baldwin Park across from the 4H building
- Between French Crepes and French Meadow Bakery across from Ye Old Mill
Two trolleys can take you from the Creative Activities building to the Pet Center. Runs from 8 AM – 9 PM, with the exception of the parade from 2-3 PM. One of the trolleys is handicapped accessible.
