Come on Down to the Cities Matter Game Show at the State Fair

Do you know how much a firefighter's gear weighs? Or which Minnesota city is named after the Ojibwe word for rice?

If you're going to the Minnesota State Fair this year (Aug. 25-Sept. 5) you can find out! Step right up to play the Cities Matter Game Show—we're located inside the Education Building and we're brighter and louder than ever before. Folks of all ages are invited to play for a chance to win a prize.

This is the Minnesota city trivia showdown. (Do you know of any others? Yeah, didn't think so.)

Minnesota students entering grades 4-6 will also have the chance this fall to compete in the League's annual Mayor For A Day essay contest. Pick up an entry form at the booth, or download a PDF of the 2016 essay form at

Cities Matter is a project of the League of Minnesota Cities dedicated to sharing information about city services with residents. Find out more at Also be sure to check out Twitter and Facebook for photos and dispatches from the booth. See you at the fair!
