State Fair 2016

20161022_140259

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 -.
