The State Fair of Texas is in Full Swing!

From Pegasus News: The 2012 State Fair of Texas opened on the drizzly morning of September 28 and faced a chilly downpour the next day, but dedicated crowds still packed the vendor booths and food stands.

“Rain or shine, we’re out here,” fairgoer Donna Partain said. “We’ve been coming here for 35 years, and this is the only weekend we could do it. We had to get a corn dog.”

This year’s fair marks Big Tex’s 60th anniversary, and the “Big and Bright” themed party will continue until October 21… “The installation signals to all of us that the Texas State Fair is just around the corner,” said Sue Gooding, vice president of public and community relations for the fair. “It’s a great, world-class exhibit.”

The fair attracts more than 3 million people annually who spend nearly $360 million on gate tickets, ride coupons, and food coupons, all of which goes back to the Dallas economy, Gooding said…

With a circus-like atmosphere, the fair offers more than fried food and cowboys. From traveling reptile shows to a giant butter sculpture and even the fair’s Addams Family musical, there’s something going on in every corner of the fairground located in the 277-acre Fair Park area.

Famous for its barrage of fried foods and specialty dishes, the state fair creates a new edible attraction each year. The 2012 additions include fried jambalaya, fried bacon cinnamon rolls and fried samoa cookies, as part of the Girl Scouts’ centennial celebration

The auto show displays more than 300,000 vehicles, and several companies have debuted new models at the State Fair, including the 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe.

Along with the classics, such as the auto show and carnival rides, new exhibits like the Chinese Lantern Festival bring in additional money and spectacle.

“This is just something we do every year,” Donna Partain said. “We get excited to see all the new things they have.”
