Good Morning America (GMA) was in town on Wednesday to check out the Minnesota State Fair and help Minnesotans prepare for the festivities.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS anchor Matt Belanger joined the GMA crew at the fairgrounds.

Laurie Bergamotto, lifestyle contributor for GMA’s “The Right Stuff,” joined Belanger to detail what items are a necessity to bring to the fair this year.

With over 300 acres of fairgrounds, 500 different options for food and drink, Bergamotto advised that a portable charger, rain poncho, stroller, cooler, and water are essentials for the Great Minnesota Get-Together.

The Minnesota State Fair runs from Aug. 24 through Labor Day.
