Children's Minnesota in St. Paul found a special way to celebrate the State Fair despite its cancellation this season.

According to a release, instead of patients getting together to celebrate, carts were used to bring the fair fun to their rooms. One cart delivered state fair-themed food such as corn dogs and cotton candy. Another cart was filled with goodie bags, arts and crafts projects, balloons and stuffed animals. There was also a caricature artist creating caricatures for patients virtually.

The in-house TV station at Children’s Minnesota, Star Studio, also has a full week of state fair-themed shows for patients.
