Went to State Fair near end of October, caught the last glimpse before it closes.
State Fair is the biggest event in Dallas, usually lasts for the entire October. The fair ground spreads out like a town in itself. Lots of exhibits and competitions took place here throughout the month.
I remember as kids we used to get free tickets to the fair at our school every year. Time to regret throwing those away as now we had to pay for our own – full fares -.
Several warehouse-style buildings hosted car and truck shows.
Charge up your car while it is parked.
Pretty sure whoever put this up knows what he’s doing.
You don’t usually see a crowd like this in Texas very often.
Long line is for this
“Are those gonna be in our plates soon?” I asked at one point.
There were several categories, such as how much yoke stays together or how fast eggwhite runs.
Fried Jell-o is the winner recipe of the year. A must stopby.
Huge line means that these ladies were very busy.
For a whooping $8, our food is finally here.
Each plate contains two of these, that’s $4 each.
Next up, pig race.
Our cheerleader girl + man.
1, 2, 3….
little piglets bursted out of their cages…
and the loser is….
Home furnishing exhibit.
“Those are not made in China!”
“LIke not made where I was made!”
Free tramplin experience – adults allowed.
Test driving track cutting through the fairground.
Free games such as tossing sandbags into the hole up top.
Or simulated car race.
Those don’t work too well as the cars always flip and you have to kick it back.
Control platform, our turn.
