The Minnesota State Fair is officially canceled. That hasn’t happened since the polio outbreak in 1946. The first fair was held in 1859. This will be the sixth time the fair has been canceled. It was canceled four times because of wars, and this will be the second time because of disease.
As I think back to last year when I attended the fair and how crowded it was I know that I would not have the courage to go this year. It is sad to see it canceled. I think we will all remembered 2020 for a long time and 2019 will be remembered as the time before.
