Last Friday, we surprised the kids by pulling them from school early (a rarity for us!), and whisked them to the State Fair of Texas. The Fair is known as one of Dallas’ signature events, and has taken place virtually every year since 1886! I grew up going to the fair with my grandfather, so when we moved back to Texas, it was so special to resume the tradition with my kids.
The train makes everything more fun…especially when it drops you at the front gates of the Fair!
Everything is bigger in Texas, right? Including the Fair….with everything from a 300,000 square foot Auto Show, a 212-foot ferris wheel (the largest in North America…and something I’ll never ride again!), BMX stunt shows, pig and ostrich races, a full barnyard, and every conceivable fried food. Seriously…even fried Coke and fried butter!
