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

State Fair of Texas Opens Today

Today is the official opening of this year's Texas State Fair!

The Fair will run through October 21.

Something that they have been working on for the past few weeks is trying to get more of their vendors to use No Trans Fat Oil.  I mean, most everything at the fair is fried, so why not try to help some people who aren't going to help themselves by gorging everything they see.

Personally, I do have a weakness for Funnel Cakes, which is basically just fried pancake batter, but they smell and taste so good... and I eat mine the traditional way with the Powered Sugar... no fruit topping for me!!

There are many days where there are discounts so check out their website to see which day is which.

I remember going to the State Fair every year with my Mom and brother and sister.  We got free tickets at school and we would catch the bus and head to the fair.  I took my son and step brother several years (many) ago and had a great time.  They have wonderful exhibits to walk through.  There is a museum of history on the grounds as well, if I remember correctly.  I also remember going to the UT/Oklahoma game during the fair.  There was always excitement in the air when these two teams would meet.  Thanks for the memory.

I haven't been to the State Fair since I was a teenager and that's been a LONG time ago.  Good to know it is still a popular site to visit.

Wow I'm impressed with your blogs and being #1 in the state on Active Rain.  Congrats to you.  I just started blogging about ten days ago and love it.

Thanks for sharing.
