The natives are restless for some outdoor fun with a cool breeze and an even cooler beverage.
We've suffered the hard summer months and we're ready get out of the air conditioning and breathe the fresh Co2 again.
This is State Fair weather.
Time to load up the family and get to Fair Park.
My family has been attending the State Fair for 5 generations. We like to head over to the Fletcher's tent first thing. There you will find many of our fellow Texans wolfing down a Corny Dog (corn-battered, deep-fried, hot dog on a stick).
|A State Fair creation. For me a tradition.|
It's really not just another corny dog that we're talking about here. These are different. These deep-fried treats have folks paralyzed to a near orgasmic pleasure. They're all huddled around the mustard/ketchup dispensers and attacking their snack with fervor. Some with the fervor of Michele Bachmann, perhaps...
|Worlds oldest running Chevy, 1913. Today's Chevy gets worse MPG.|
After seeing all that good car stuff, there's updated rides/games for young and old on the midway. The staff is well dressed and friendly. There's also the magnificent food pavilion with tastes from around the world, a turkey-leg tent, fried everything, Red River Classic, draft beer, a petting zoo/livestock arena and more.
|Mucho to do, but you'll just keep dreaming of those corny dogs...|
I tell u what: There's plenty of food, fun, and exhibition to be found in Fair Park each and every year, but I go for the people.
The crowds this year were the best I've seen in a while. (Recession?)
The folks working the Fair sure appreciate our support... (Jobs?)
I invite my fellow Texans who live outside of the DFW Metroplex to keep in mind it's called the STATE Fair of Texas. (State Pride?)
So all of you are permitted entry if you're so inclined. Come see us in Dallas this Fall.
Join the Corny Dog Pilgrimage.
