Sure, just going to the Minnesota State Fair is fun-- but getting PAID to go would be even better, right?

Heading to the Great Minnesota Get-Together is a rite of summer here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. But check this out: You could get PAID to go to the Fair this year!

In exchange, you'd be WORKING at the State Fair, but still. Both the State Fair and various vendors are looking to hire over 500 employees to work all 12 days of this year’s run. The Fair's website said you can get a job doing everything from ticket selling, ticket taking, parking, retail sales, food service, rides and games, sanitation, barn attendant and public safety.

And, you'd make anywhere between $9.50 to $11 dollars an hour, the site says. You have to be at least 16 years old, and be available to work all 12 days of the Fair. If you're interested in working at the Fair, you'll want to check out the State Fair Job Fair. It's happening on Wednesday, July 10th at the Fairgrounds in Falcon Heights.

You can get more information about available jobs, benefits and how to apply, by clicking HERE. (And, no, official Fair Taste-Tester isn't one of the jobs...)
