Video: Fairgoers take a Minnesota State Fair quiz

We tested some of the visitors to the Go Radio Go Zone.

There's a lot going on at the Minnesota State Fair. There's no way to keep track of absolutely everything – from music to beer to waste disposal to funding to tech systems to whatever else you can think of.

But it's fun to see how much people do know. Which is why we grabbed a few people from the Go Radio Go Zone for a Minnesota State Fair quiz. You can watch how they did in the video above.
