Minnesotans have been officially introduced to Grumpy Cat.
Grumpy Cat - along with a handful of other cat personalities that have gone viral - visited the Minnesota State Fair on Wednesday, day seven. The cats kicked off festivities for the day's Internet Cat Video Festival. The sold out event is a first this year at the State Fair.
Last year - for its first year - the festival attracted more than 10,000 people to the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. But the State Fair snagged the event this year.
The videos were projected at 7 p.m. for the show at the Grandstand. Julie Klausner, a New York-based comedy writer, performer, podcaster and author, is hosting the event.
