The Minnesota State Fair today unveiled an exciting new attraction in the North End…

“So over the past couple years, we’ve been doing a little bit of prep work in order to make this year the biggest year ever up there, so the marquee thing up there will be the North End Event Center, a brand new building it’s about $16 million to build.”

Fair spokeswoman Danielle Dullinger says the 12,000 square-foot hall will hold museum-quality exhibits free with fair admission.
