These preliminary ideas sound pretty cool and I think they'll make the state fair even better!

According to an article from KARE11 officials are looking to jazz things up on the north end of the fairgrounds, specifically between the Pet Center and the campground off of Snelling Avenue.

It sounds like it won't be a huge expansion, an amphitheater and a pavilion on agriculture have been talked about,  but it would allow for the fair to accommodate attractions they haven't been able to in the past.

Obviously this is still very much in the beginning stages but it sounds like this could make the fair more attractive to people and give them the opportunity to see some new things. We'll have to see what happens.
