You’re probably way ahead on this – you’ve got your woodworking entry polished, selected the recipe for your to-die-for soufflé and have combed and clipped all of the press coverage of new taste treats. It’s State Fair time!
Time to get practical now – The earlybird bus bargain tickets went on sale July 20th – buy before August 25 at $4 –kids four and under still ride free. Buy a group ticket and get four round-trip rides $15. Buy online or get information about sales outlets at metrotransit.org/statefair.
Shutter service operates throughout the Fair, August 25-September 5. Rides are every 15 minutes from some sites, every 30 minutes from others. You’ll find a full list of park and ride to the Fair sites on the website.
If you just can’t wait – or you want to practice bus riding, know that Metro Transit is offering free rides to three art fairs the first weekend in August, August 5-7. Pick up and drop off at the Loring Park, Powderhorn and Uptown Art Fairs. Download a pass at http://metrotransit.org/artpass
