Come to the fairgrounds to join us, or watch our Web cam to catch the action online.
Highlights today include:
Our photo scavenger hunt will be underway. We'll take walk-up registrations but the earlier you show up at Carousel Park, the better chance you have to complete the pictorial missions.
Keep an eye on the MPR commemorative photo booth to see pictures uploaded throughout the day!
Our live performance schedule is packed. Here is the rundown:
11 am - 12 noon: Midday live broadcast with Gary Eichten and guest Sen. Al Franken
