FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. - Day two of the Great Minnesota Get-Together is up and running.

KARE 11's Bryan Piatt checks out some spots for you to visit.

First, the Eco Experience building has the latest in environmentally focused living. New this year is a display of 12,000 aluminum cans which shows the number of cans thrown away and not recycled every 5 minutes in Minnesota.

Second, the Gander Mountain fishing pond is back for another year. The pond, located at Randall Ave. and Cooper Street, allows kids to catch and release a fish for free. The pond is open every day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Lastly, you can actually go "ice" skating at the fair this year. D1 Backyard Rinks has set up a sheet of synthetic ice surrounded by NHL-style boards. The cost is $3 for 10 minutes and skates are provided. The rink is located on Randall avenue, just south of the Eco Experience Building.
