The Minnesota State Fair says it is short on employees for the Great Minnesota Get-Together, which will open in less than a month, KARE-TV reports.

Employees who are hired will be required to work all 12 days of the State Fair. In all, it takes about 3,000 workers to cover the fair, from ticket booths to security to the food stands and more.

Fair spokesman Brienna Schuette tells KARE that they "Can't run the fair" without the workers.

The State Fair website has more information on employment opportunities.

Schuette says working at the fair is a "fun job for anyone needing some extra cash or for those who are unemployed."

The State Fair begins Aug. 22 and runs through Labor Day.
