People won't be flocking to the Minnesota State Fair this summer, but you'll still be able to enjoy the sights, sounds, and even taste of the fair because officials have just unveiled a virtual fair.

Organizers say the online fair will give people a behind-the-scenes look at the fair and feature all sorts of entertainment and demonstrations. There will be daily contests and activities.
