FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (WCCO) – Many (if not all) members of the WCCO This Morning team were shedding a little tear Monday morning. Labor Day marks the last day of the Minnesota State Fair.

Because the end of another Great Minnesota Get-Together puts everyone in a nostalgic mood, the Morning Show took a trip through the oldest ride at the fair: Ye Old Mill.

There’s still one more show to catch at the Grandstand, and it’s a big one: Tim McGraw is playing Monday evening.

And finally, the Morning Show team took a look back at their very favorite moments from their 2013 experience at the fair.

Happy trails, and see you all at the fair next year!

This year at the Great Minnesota Get-Together, WCCO-TV is once again putting your meteorology skills to the test.

This year’s theme is all about weather and our amazing weather team.

Fairgoers will have a chance to “become” a meteorologist for a day –- putting their skills to the test to report the weather as a fair forecaster in front of a large, touch-screen TV, incorporated with special effects.

In addition to testing your meteorology skills, fairgoers will have the opportunity to experiment with the Chroma Key, a special effects green screen used during weather forecasts.

Are you apart of our Weather Watcher Network?

Come to the WCCO-TV Fair Forecaster booth to get the latest weather updates and try out the Weather Watcher Network program our meteorologists use on-air.

We’ll also be giving away free “Weather is Our Nature” bags to every guest that visits our WCCO-TV Fair Forecaster booth during the designated bag giveaway times -– 10:30 a.m., 3:30 p.m., and 7:30 p.m.

Outside of the WCCO-TV booth, fairgoers will have the opportunity to check out WCCO’s Mobile Weather Watcher, a state-of-the-art weather-tracking machine.

And as always, your favorite WCCO anchors and reporters will be on hand to take photos with fans and fair guests during several daily photograph sessions.

The WCCO-TV booth is at the corner of Carnes Ave. and Nelson St.

We can’t wait for you to join us at the fair!
