There are certain things that Minnesotans just love. Minnesota, things shaped like Minnesota, and the State Fair. The Mall of America is really tapping into that last one and opening up a year-round fair-like experience on the 4th floor of the mall.

Bring Me the News is reporting that a fair-inspired restaurant and entertainment venue will be opening for business in December. "The Fair on 4" will be 35,000 square feet in size, and feature fair-inspired foods, pizza, beverages, and activities. The category for dining is listed as "fast-casual".

Jeff Brown, managing partner of The Fair on 4 told BMTN:

We wanted to create something fresh and new at Mall of America while celebrating our beloved state of Minnesota, and what better way than having an atmosphere filled with everyone’s favorite fair foods and activities year-round.

Rumor has it that some of the activities will be axe throwing, hammerschlagen, go-karts, an arcade, and an area for live music.

The Fair on 4 has already been added to the Mall of America online directory, and is listed as "opening soon". This would be a fun place to hit up while you do some holiday shopping, or a great day out with your friends since we had to skip the actual fair this year.
