Thirteen Things to do at the Texas State Fair
(plus a few that I can’t wait to see next year)
1. Corny Dog – I’ve heard that the corn dog was invented at the Texas State Fair. Not sure if it’s true, but it was the best tasting corn dog that I’ve ever eaten.
2. Creative Arts Building, Part 1– How could I pass up this year’s creative entries? There were amazing pieces of art and I loved how much effort went into displaying the items into different themes and color categories (i.e. red & green Christmas items together).
3. Creative Arts Building, Part 2 – Celebrity (local to the area) chef cooking demonstrations – yum!
4. Children’s Barnyard – Sheep, goats, and emus oh my!
5. Freebies/Samples – I’m particularly fond of the samples handed out at the Burts Bees tent.
6. Ferris Wheel – It’s reportedly the largest ferris wheel in the western hemisphere
7. Cotton Bowl – If we had timed it better, I could be there this weekend for the UT/OU game. Go ‘Horns!
8. Arts & Crafts Pavilion – the mother-in-law was tired and the husband just ignored my pleas. lol
9. Concerts – I know I saw them just a month ago, but I would love to see Cross Canadian Ragweed again. (there are other good bands scheduled too)
10. Chevrolet Test Drive – you can test drive every car in the Chevy line up. Again, under different circumstances I would have test drove a car
11. Fried Coca Cola – No, I didn’t try this, but I was tempted.
12. Little Hands on the Farm – This was so much fun for the girls! They were able to find out about the different activities on a farm.
13. Food – I have never seen so much variety of food! I didn’t get to try anything other than a corn dog, but there is next year…..
