Getting To Minnesota State Fair Will Be Harder

FALCON HEIGHTS (AP) – It will be a bit harder to get to the Minnesota State Fair this year and it will cost a little more to get inside.

Officials say construction at University and Snelling avenues in St. Paul will make this a great year to try a park-and-ride lot for the fair, which opens Thursday and runs through September 5th.

The Snelling-University intersection off Interstate 94 has become a bottleneck, and I-94 is also experiencing snarls due to construction.

Once there, fairgoers will find higher admission prices at the gate. An adult ticket is up $1 to $12, while kids’ ticket prices have jumped from $8 to $10. Parking in a fairgrounds lot is also up a buck to $12. Advance tickets remain $9 but are available only through Wednesday night.
