Minnesota State Fair

The fireworks that lit up the sky to end an exciting two weeks said it best: the Minnesota State Fair was a blast! Minnesotans from all over the state came out for the second week of their annual “Get-Together” and another dose of Texas on Tour.

Fairgoers used their All-Access passes to return again and again, making sure to take advantage of every virtual vacation and adventure we had to offer. Some of the most popular adventures this week were the great vacations showcased in our Discover Texas Dome Theater. Cities like San Antonio gained even more fans once they learned about the Steel Eel roller coaster at SeaWorld and the great family fun to be had at the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch, which is a drive-through safari. South Padre Island offered fairgoers a different idea of what winter could be like with its beautiful beaches that can be enjoyed year-round.

People at the fair were drawn to our Lone Star stage as it rocked out to Texas tunes all week. BettySoo and Ryan Harkrider represented the “Live Music Capital of the World®,” Austin, Texas, and kept everyone’s toes tapping.

With only two more stops to go, time is running out for you to take advantage of a free mini-vacation with Texas on Tour.
