Posted at 9:33 AM on August 29, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

There's a few things going on in other news, but I'd be remiss not to point out that today is MPR Day at the Minnesota State Fair! The schedule is a great line up:

* 11 am Midday live! Gary Eichten hosted and guest Senator Amy Klobuchar. the topic: McCain chooses Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
* Noon Midday Gary and guest Garrison Keillor talk live.
* 2-3 pm VocalEssence performance with classical music host John Birge.
* 4-5 pm The Current's Kids' Dance Party - DJ Barb Abney will host!
* 3-7 pm The Current's Mary Lucia fires up a live broadcast.
* 7-10 pm The Current DJ Mark Wheat takes over when Lucia takes off.
* 8 pm Grandstand! A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor.

Best of all, you can share your state fair photos with us on MPR's Flickr pool. Submit your photos to the MPR Photo group with the tag "state fair" and know we appreciate seeing what you experience there.
