Also, stop by the popular Xcel Energy safety booth, which features a unique 10,000-volt Powertown safety demonstration. It showcases the power of electricity and explains how you and your family can stay safe around downed power lines, construction sites and other hazards.

Visit the Powertown safety demonstration throughout the fair in the lower level of the Grandstand, along the south wall near the west entrance.
