Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Dallas Real Estate- State Fair of Texas

Dallas Real Estate- State Fair of Texas

Big Tex

The State Fair of Texas is now upon us.  This year's fair runs from Sept 29 through October 22. 

This also means that the Texas/OU game is this weekend!  That means lots more traffic and longer waits at the restaurants, but these are the reasons Dallas begged the two schools to continue at the Cottonbowl for the next few years.

As for the actual fair, you can get more information at  Don't forget that there are many ways to not pay full price.  Why pay full price when you don't have to!  There are Coca-Cola days, Dr. Pepper days, after 6pm price, and many other things.  Go to the Sponsor page to check them all out.

Don't forget to eat a funnel cake for me!!  Powered sugar only, I don't like them with fruit on top.

I grew up in Richardson, so the fair was huge for me. The coolest thing ever is that they give you a day off of school and a free ticket. I think they still do that?

Yes, they still do that. Some districts even get a "Fall Break" this week which means the entire week off.  This will be the last year for it though as school in the area will be pushed off 3 weeks starting next week.  No district can start earlier than the last week of August now.

The other good thing about the fair is you don't have to have one of those "munchkin things" to go and still have fun!
