FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (KNSI) The Minnesota State Fairgrounds in suburban St. Paul will be a busy place Thursday as the annual State Fair begins its 12-day run.

Last year's fair was the second-most attended fair ever, with more than 1.7 million visitors.

Fair organizers say with good weather, they're hopeful of matching or exceeding that number this year. The fair runs through Labor Day.
