State Fair of Texas

If you live in the state of Texas you know that the state fair every fall is a huge deal. It's so famous that Oprah even filmed a show there a few years back. The big draw is all the fried food. You can literally find any edible item in a fried version. 

I happened to be in Dallas on the fair's final day so my parents and I decided to go.

It was SO crowded. Like more crowded than Times Square on New Years Eve crowded. It was hard to walk anywhere. 

We did have to brave the crowd (and the extremely long line) for a Fletcher's corny dog. You can't go to the state fair of Texas and not have a corny dog. It's the law.

You also have to take a photo with Big Tex. Also a law. This year was the debut of a new Big Tex after the last one caught fire last year. 

We stopped trying to walk around and found an open table in the wine garden. So we set up base camp and wandered out to get more food every so often.

Here is a round up of some of the things we tried. Clockwise from upper left we have tator twisters, fried spinach and artichoke dip, funnel cake, and fried chocolate coverd strawberries. 

All in all it was a fun and successful day at the fair.

Until Next Time
