A ride at the Minnesota State Fair malfunctioned Thursday, stranding 24 people about 100 feet off the ground for 40 minutes. The ride is called the Stratosphere. It looks like a tall tower, with swings hanging from branch-like extensions.
The swine show will go on at the Minnesota State Fair. Deputy State Epidemiologist Richard Danila says officials at the federal Centers for Disease Control support the precautions Minnesota officials are taking to prevent the spread of a new strain of swine flu from pigs to fair visitors.
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.
