LAST CHANCE: For Fun, Food On-A-Stick at Minnesota State Fair Monday

For the final day of the fair, many merchandise and food vendors are offering Last Chance bargains; flyers with deals listings are available at all information booths.

It’s also Kids Day, and children age 5 to 12 pay only $7. The rides at Mighty Midway and Kidway have a one ticket discount all day. Barns close for the day at 3 p.m.

In addition, all day in Carousel Park, Cub Foods is sponsoring giveaways, appearances by local celebrities, prize drawings and live performances.

As for the evening's entertainment act, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller play the grandstand at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $29 and $39.

If you're looking to hitch a ride to the fair on a shuttle, look no further than Richfield to do so. The $5 shuttle from Best Buy corporate campus is still in service.
