ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) The 47th annual Central Minnesota Farm Show opens Tuesday at the River's Edge Convention Center in St. Cloud.

Show chairman Brian Olson says this year's show features more than 370 booths and 215 exhibitors.

The show runs Tuesday through Thursday. Hours are 9 am to 4 pm daily.

Drawing from a more than 100 mile radius, the Central Minnesota Farm Show gives farmers a chance to check out the newest products and socialize with other members of the agriculture industry. 

Each year, the St. Cloud Area Chamber of Commerce dedicates some of the proceeds from the show to scholarships to students pursuing careers in agri-business. Since 1982, more than $68,000 has been awarded to high school students.
