Minnnesota Screens Makes First Appearance at the Great Minnesota Get Together

Retractable screens on a stick anyone?

Well, ok, not really. BUT, Minnnesota Screens will be making our very first appearance at the Great Minnesota Get Together - and we’d love for you to drop by and visit!

In case you’ve never been to the MN State Fair, it kicks off this week. Frankly, it would take an insane amount of blogosphere space to tell you about everything the fair has to offer, but as with most treasured traditions, there are highlights. So, here’s a short list of ‘musts’ when it comes to fair season.

Giant Slide at the Minnesota State Fair
Seriously, the food. From chocolate-dipped bacon and fried alligator to deep-fried twinkies and crab fritters, this is a wonderland for adventurous eaters. Plus, the good folks organizing the fair have announced a whole new lineup of  unique food vendors. Come hungry and stocked with cash...and ready to patiently wait in line.

It’s a little hard to fathom, but the State Fair, in fact, boasts over 900 musical performances this year- many of them free with the price of admission. The main stage - the State Fair Grandstand (which is not free with admission) will feature some of the biggest names in the game, including Tim McGraw, Fall Out Boy, Journey and Aretha Franklin. Plus, each night is capped off with a fireworks show. If you’re aiming to take in some legendary tunes, the fair is a pretty solid bet.

From prize-winning animals, foods and crafts to historical exhibits and tours, there’s no shortage of interesting things to see and learn at the fair. Be sure to visit the Adventure Park,  where you can check out bungee jumping, reptile petting zoos, a butterfly house and a ton more.

And that brings us to Minnesota Screens! Like we said, we’re making our first trek to the fair, where we’ll be showcasing our Phantom Screens! Want to get a personal look into what retractable screens can do for you? Visit us in the Home Improvement building anytime between August 21st and September 1st.

Hope to see you around!
