The Minnesota Renaissance Festival (south of Shakopee, MN) has been in existence for over 40 years with most of its run at it current site alongside the Minnesota River. In recent years, though, frac sand mining has drawn closer and closer to the festival grounds until this year it finally forced people to walk through the pit in front of the main gate on what appears to be a bit of a long trek. I can only image what this latest change has done to further snarl traffic. The Minnesota Renaissance Festival has announced that it will move elsewhere following next year's run.
