I remember when the state fair was fair, looks to be a sinkhole for money now days.

I believe that the ND State Fair is the highest attended State Fair per capita in the USA. It is well attended and a great fair. I love the exhibits - especially from the kids.

I am glad Minot has the State Fairgrounds, but am curious who gets the revenue generated when Minot puts on activities on the State Fairground and in it's facilities such as the BIG ONE craft sale, Norst Hostgest, etc...?? I am guessing they lease the facility from the state since the state is putting the money into and maintaining the facilities?
