A farm near the Mall of America could become the site of a World's Fair event.

Bloomington city officials voted Tuesday to buy the Kelley Farm property for $32 million to be a possible site for Expo 2023.

Minnesota is one of three finalists to host the World's Fair event. The other finalists are in Argentina and Poland. The winning city will be chosen in November.

Organizers say the three-month event would draw 150,000 visitors per day and have an economic impact of $4 billion.
