UPDATE: Tickets for Minnesota State Fair ‘Food Parade’ sold out
The Minnesota State Fair announced all tickets for the Food Parade are sold out.
Tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. Friday for the Minnesota State Fair’s "Food Parade" — a 1.5-mile drive-thru experience that includes 16 food vendors.
However, users experienced intermittent issues accessing the website to purchase tickets.
Fair organizers say the event is more than just food: trivia and other entertainment options should keep attendees occupied for hours.
Admission is $20 per vehicle, and each vehicle is allowed up to five occupants; once inside, food and drinks are a la carte. The Food Parade will take place over three weekends: Aug. 20-23, Aug. 27-30 and Sept. 3-7.
Proceeds will help cover the State Fair’s normal maintenance and operations. The fair is expecting to lose 95% of its yearly revenue because of the coronavirus pandemic.
