The second round of the Minnesota State Fair's Food Parade is officially sold out. 

The Fair said Thursday that the Fall Food Parade, which will be held Oct. 1-4 and Oct. 8-11 on the State Fairgrounds, sold out after a ticket lottery was held earlier in the week. 

"We appreciate the support of so many fair fans and regret that we are not able to accommodate all who wished to attend the Fall Food Parade," the Fair said on Twitter. "We look forward to welcoming everyone back for the Great Minnesota Get-Back-Together in 21!"

The event will feature 16 vendors on a 1.5-mile route on the Fairgrounds in which cars full of Fair fans will parade through, able to buy tasty fall treats from the vendors. 

The Fair said last week it would be holding round two of the Food Parade after the first one was such a success, attracting 19,000 vehicles over a few weekends in late August and early September.  The Fair held the first food parade after the Minnesota State Fair was canceled due to COVID-19.

The 2021 Minnesota State Fair is scheduled for Aug. 26-Sept. 6. The State Fair recently changed its signage on the Fairgrounds to reflect the next event, as is the tradition in the month of September. 

Meanwhile, the Minnesota Renaissance Festival took a page from the State Fair's playbook and is also holding a drive-through food event this year.

Tickets are still available.
