Governor Dayton today officially declared this Super Bowl Week in Minnesota. Dayton says he and the state are “excited about welcoming all of the nation, all of the world to Minnesota. It may not be balmy weather, this will be Bud Grant football weather this weekend.” Dayton’s message to visitors from out of state? Behave and bundle up. Dayton says there’s no shortage of things to do in the days leading up to the Super Bowl here at U-S Bank Stadium. One popular attraction is zip lining across the Mississippi. We asked Governor Dayton if that’s something he’s going to try. And he responded “you know they sold out before I even knew to sign up, but I’d happily do it, yeah.” The governor in the past has talked about the time he bungee jumped with his sons at the State Fair. Dayton says zip lining would be fun, too, but he doesn’t want to get in the way of paying customers at the sold out event. More than 100,000 are expected to visit Minnesota for the festivities in the week leading up to the Super Bowl. Minnesota last hosted the game 26 years ago at the Metrodome.
