The Minnesota State Fair opens tomorrow in Saint Paul, and this year you can take the Northstar Link from St. Cloud, to the Northstar Train in Becker to the Fridley station; where buses will run to and from the Fair every half hour.

If you have a Northstar Family Pass, you can use it for a roundtrip to the Fair. They are available for $30 online HERE (good for 2 adults and up to 3 kids).  Even if you're just two adults heading to the Fair, a Family Pass is $12 cheaper than buying single fares for the trip.

There won't be any special Fair schedules for the Northstar Link & Train, so you can follow normal schedules to plan your trip. And it's important to note; there's NO Northstar service on Labor Day.
