SAINT PAUL, Minn. - The Great Minnesota Get Together is one of the largest fairs in the country and well known for its 12 days of food and fun, but even just one day can put a serious dent in your wallet.
It's relatively easy for a family of four to shell out $100 dollars or more, but with a little searching you can find plenty of free items.
In fact, there are more than 40 places at the fair that offer free things, from lip balm to a ride on a Harley Davidson motorcycle.
KARE 11's Jeffrey DeMars found 11 interesting items in quick order.
He also offers a list of even more options for fairgoers.
