The holidays are near but some people might have visions of Pronto Pups and mini donuts still dancing in their heads.

To that end, on Tuesday the folks at the Minnesota State Fair are offering $13 admission tickets — the lowest price all year, according to the fair website — for the big late-summer get-together.

The one-day sale offers up to 12 tickets per person ordering them while supplies last. Buyers can receive them via email and text, but not by U.S. mail. The tickets are good for any day of the fair.

To order the discounted tickets, go to the State Fair website.

Admission tickets revert to their pre-fair discount price of $15 on Monday, available by email, text and regular U.S. mail.

Next year's fair runs Aug. 22 through Labor Day, Sept. 2. Regular admission tickets for adults at the State Fair gates in Falcon Heights this past year were $18 for adults and $16 for seniors and kids.

Correction: A previous version incorrectly described how the one-day sale tickets are distributed. They are available by email and text messages, but not by U.S. mail.
