PUEBLO — With the rodeo canceled and modified events, the Colorado State Fair Reimagined will look a lot different this year as organizers continue with the event to be as safe as possible.

The state fair will run from Friday, Aug. 28, through Monday, Sept. 7. It will only be open to people involved in the 4H and FFA events and some food vendors.

Wednesday's Schedule:

2020 Great Colorado State Fair Butterfly Hunt:

Each day the state fair will hide butterflies throughout their website, social media and Day Camp videos where each one has a unique code. If you find a butterfly, you can enter your email address and promo code on their website for a chance to win prizes.
There are daily prizes, weekly prize drawings, and a grand prize that will be given away on Sept. 7.
