MINNEAPOLIS — Organizers of a local event celebrating American and Minnesota history say the $15 admission fee will be waived for the rest of the week so that people can donate the money to hurricane relief efforts.

CivicFest, which started Friday, will have free admission during its remaining three days at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Jeff Larson, CEO of the Minneapolis St. Paul 2008 Host Committee, says organizers hope people will choose to attend the event and donate to relief efforts.

The host committee is handing out information on where people can donate money to help hurricane victims.


Ticket prices for CivicFest had been $15 for adults and $10 for students, seniors and active-duty members of the military.
