MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It’s a big weekend coming up. Labor Day Weekend: the last chance to get to the State Fair.

If you are staying around town this weekend and are looking for something to do, WCCO This Morning has you covered.

It’s the first week of September and that means it’s time for fall activities.

Aamodt’s Apple Farm

OK, it may still technically be and feel like summer, but it’s the first weekend Aamodt’s Apple Farm in Stillwater is open.

Enjoy hay wagon rides, honey crisp express kids train, hay bale maze, and apple picking. The farm is open through the end of October.


On Sunday, Day Block Brewing is hosting their first ever PorktoberFest.

This block party in downtown Minneapolis offers a slew of awesome food, kids activities, live music and, of course, craft beer.

Tickets are $10 and include a $5 food and beverage voucher.

Bluegrass Duet Championships @ State Fair

Listen to some Blue Grass at the Minnesota State Fair.

The Minnesota Bluegrass Duet Championships are Friday and Saturday at the West End Market.

Corn Feast @ Valley Fair

Or head to Valley Fair and eat free corn! It’s the 39th Annual Green Giant Corn Feast.

Treat yourself to over 30,000 pounds of free corn-on-the-cob from Green Giant.

Bring the entire family and eat as much corn as you want all weekend long — included with Valleyfair admission.
