TIMONIUM, Md. (AP) — The Maryland State Fair is embracing Pokemon Go.

Fair officials said in a statement Tuesday that Sunday will be Pokemon Go Day at the fairgrounds in Timonium. They’re inviting players to spend the afternoon using smartphones to capture Pocket Monsters at five fairground locations, and doing battle in two virtual gyms.

Spokeswoman Becky Brashear says there will be Pokemon contests Sunday through Sept. 1, featuring prizes such as day passes, ride vouchers and gift certificates to a sponsoring restaurant.

Brashear says workers noticed Pokemon players searching the fairgrounds in recent weeks, so fair officials added more Pokestops for fair visitors.

The fair opens Thursday and continues through Sept. 5.

    That’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this works.
