Come on down! – fairgoers once again invited to visit the Cities Matter booth

For the fifth consecutive year, Minnesotans visiting the State Fair will have an opportunity to learn more about city services and the value of city government in our state by stopping-by the League of Minnesota Cities' “Cities Matter” booth, located in the Fair’s Education Building. At this year’s Great Get Together, held August 22 – September 2, fairgoers can step-up and test their knowledge of cities by playing the interactive “Cities Matter Game Show” (emceed by League staff) and answering quiz questions designed to be informative and entertaining.

Players of all ages will win Cities Matter wristbands. Additionally, children ages 7-12 who are residents of Minnesota can pick-up entry forms for the League’s “Mayor For A Day” essay contest at the booth. The essay contest is being held to commemorate the League’s Centennial year, and four prizes of $100 each will be awarded in two age categories. Winning “Mayor For A Day” entries will be published in a future edition of Minnesota Cities magazine.
