*NEW* Owatonna Museum and FairDo you love the MN State Fair, but hate the crowds and walking? Or maybe you've never been. Well, we have a great option for you. The Steele County Free Fair in Owatonna, MN is an amazing fair. It has everything the MN State Fair has to offer in a much smaller, less crazy environment. Senior Day is August 15. Don't miss out on this opportunity to enjoy food, vendors, animals, music, shows, and tons more! We'll get you to the fair by noon so you can have plenty of time to eat! Before the fair we'll make a stop at the MN State Public School Orphanage Museum for a guided tour. The museum was founded to "Remember the Children" who lived there. Between 1886 and 1945, 10,635 children that were orphaned, abandoned or abused were sent to Owatonna, once the third largest institution of its kind in the nation. Fee includes transportation and guided tour. Register by August 1. No refunds thereafter. Transportation will depart from the Lino Lakes YMCA at 8:15 am and return approximately 5:45 pm.
