Success at the State Fair

Northern Star Scouting had another great year at the Minnesota State Fair! Thank you so much to everyone who volunteered to help us spread the word about Scouting for the duration of the fair!

This was the first time in several years that Northern Star’s booth has been in a new location, with a new activity to offer to families! Participants had the opportunity to take part in our new inflatable Mobile Axe Throwing, and the response was extremely positive, with youth of all age groups being able to participate.

The State Fair itself set a new record for attendance this year, with Friday August 25th being the highest attended Friday in Fair history! Northern Star’s booth saw over 9000 participants come through during the fair, with +600 families indicating they were interested in learning more about Scouting, and both of those numbers are still growing- that’s a lot of axes thrown!

We hope to see you all there again next year!
