Spring always means, sun, flowers and summer plans to attend the North Dakota State Fair.

Spring also means, tickets go on sale for this year's entertainment on the grandstand stage. Tickets are on sale now at ndstatefair.com.

As always, tickets are on a first come, first served basis. You can also purchase tickets at the Fairgrounds in Minot.

One the grandstand stage, live music includes Cole Swindell, Florida Georgia Line, Kip Moore, Dierks Bentley, Cheap Trick and Nickelback.

This is also the best time to book any hotel accommodations you many need during the fair as hotel space is booked up very fast.
