The Great Minnesota Get-Together is finally here.

This year, the Minnesota State Fair is planning a tribute to Prince that will include musical tributes on all stages at the fair, a Prince Party in the Park at Carousel Park and purple lights on iconic fair buildings and rides.


The fireworks show that night will also be set to Prince music.

The tribute takes place Friday, Aug. 26. Fair attendees are encouraged to wear purple that day as part of the celebration.
