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.READ MORE: Mpls City Attorney Halts Talks With Human Rights Department Until Allegations Of Police Spying On Black Leaders Can Be Verified
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.READ MORE: Man Who Escaped From Northern Minnesota Corrections Facility Back In Custody
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.MORE NEWS: Next Weather: Chilly, Cloudy Saturday With Light Showers
