At the Minnesota State Fair yesterday, a group opposed to a referendum to ban gay marriage in the state dropped glitter on a booth operated by a group that supports the measure.
The anti-gay-marriage group was given space at the Fair, which happened to be under the Sky Ride. The Sky Riders didn’t have a booth so they dropped glitter, which they’ve been doing at events featuring referendum supporters.
A Fair spokeswoman told MPR’s Sasha Aslanian the group opposed to the measure banning same-sex marriage didn’t have a booth at the fair because it didn’t register for one.
