Coloradans and visitors can enjoy Minnesota without leaving the 303 area code starting Saturday at the Five Points Jazz Festival, when the Instagram-inspired MNstagram Booths roll into Colorado.

Each booth has a different immersive Minnesota travel experience inside, where visitors can take a picture for their social media with the hashtag #ONLYinMN.

There is no charge.

One booth depicts the famous First Avenue nightclub in Minneapolis, which the late performer Prince featured in his 1984 movie "Purple Rain." Another shows northern Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

Sunday, the booths will be at the Metro Denver Farmers' Market in the Highlands Ranch Town Center.

On May 27, it will be at Coors Field for the Colorado Rockies v. San Francisco Giants game.

On May 28, Memorial Day, it will be at the Denver Day of Rock in downtown Denver.

On May 30, it moves to the Bolder Boulder 10K.

Colorado is considered a top advertising market for Explore Minnesota, the state's tourism agency.

This year Explore Minnesota won a Webby Award for Best Use of Photography for its 2015 building murals in Denver and Chicago.

"Low-cost airfare makes Minnesota an affordable getaway for Coloradans," said Alyssa Ebel, spokeswoman for Explore Minnesota. "We hope the MNstagram Booths and our popular hashtag, #OnlyinMN, which has 300,000-plus uses will inspire trips to our state this summer."
