FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (WCCO) — 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.

We’ll also be giving away free Weather Watcher 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.

New to the WCCO-TV booth this year is the WCCO Talent Selfie Booth. Join your favorite WCCO anchors and reporters for a selfie during several daily photograph sessions. Your selfies will be uploaded to the WCCO-TV | CBS Minnesota Facebook page for you to like, tag and share with all your friends.

And be sure to get a good seat to watch the LIVE broadcasts – at noon, 4 p.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. We’ll be handing out a limited number of WCCO fans to guests in the stands.

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!
