So, I ran across this yesterday.  Most people in Minnesota, and the surrounding area generally look forward to the Minnesota State Fair.  It's the great Minnesota Get-together and this year, it's not happening.

For a few weeks now, we have been hearing about a lot of food vendors that are parked around the area giving people what they might be missing- their fix of fair food. The food parade even sold out within a couple of hours.  So, obviously, there was a need.  Or at least a craving.

But what if you aren't into the food part of the fair (first, what's wrong with you, and second, we understand some people aren't).  So, along comes this new fair in a box idea.  This was Tweeted out on the State Fair's account.  And it sounds interesting.  Just for people who want more fair stuff than just the food.
