Lisa Von Domek Now let's all hope that this year, Big Tex doesn't get too hot under the collar on seeing how some of them cowgirls are dressing for public display at the fair. I do recall, Big Tex flamed out , was it two years ago?

Sounds like fun. I loved going to the Houston Rodeo when I lived in TX...so funny to see the horse and carriage ride down I-10.

I need to check our local calendar to see when the Georgia national fair is... we count down to that every year.  It sounds very similar to your Texas State Fair as it's centered around agriculture.  If we are ever on the way to or from California  while it's in progress we'll have to make a point to stop.

What a fun way to kick off the fall season.  Hope you get out and kick up your boot heels.

Hi Lisa Von Domek , Most State Fairs are Huge and gives you plenty to do, causing you to come back several times to take it all in.  I have heard great things about the Texas State Fair.

Good morning Lisa Von Domek,

Texas State Fair is always a great celebration and a huge event in Texas! It's like a rite of passage, a pilgrimage to the Fair! LOL!

We have family in Dallas and near Plano, so we've been to the Fair a few times. It is bigger than life. I can't believe the size of the new and improved Big Tex!

Posted by Donna Foerster, Metro Denver Real Estate Assistant (HomeSmart Realty Group) almost 4 years ago

Hello Lisa and this sounds like a great event ...

Posted by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz almost 4 years ago

This sounds really big!!!  We had our state fair in August. Because of the flood in June I don't believe it was as successful as before and also school started earlier this year.

Donna Foerster at 55 feet, he is 3 feet taller than before he went up in flames back in 2013...Big Tex is a Fair icon!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) almost 4 years ago

It is a lot of fun Robert Vegas Bob Swetz and Big Tex is so tall, he can wave to you in Alaska and you should be able to see him!
