In the wake of the shootings and other issues, the Minnesota State Fair has beefed up security for this year.   There will be the normal bag checks that they have been doing for the last 4 years, plus, if you drive a car into the fair grounds area, your car will be thoroughly searched as well.  They want to make sure that NO ONE has a weapon, and that everyone at the Great Minnesota Get-Together will feel safe.

Although I cannot believe that the fair is already right around the corner, which to me kind of marks the unofficial end to summer, here it is.  And I'm glad that people can feel somewhat secure at the Minnesota State Fair, which is an event I love!

Happy Fair time!
