The Minnesota State Fair - the so-called "Great Minnesota Get-Together" kicks off August 24.  If past years attendance records are any indication, thousands of people will visit the fairgrounds in Falcon Heights to get an up-close and personal look at the people, attractions, and events in person.

But what if you can't make it to the actual fairgrounds?  A new partnership between EarthCam and the Star Tribune can solve your dilemma.  With their webcam technology, you'll have the ability to look at everything that's going on without leaving the confines of your home or office.
