After last year’s cancellation, the State Fair of Texas has returned (along with Big Tex) to Fair Park in Dallas and is taking place through Sunday, October 17th.

Via the fair’s website: “Through its rich and lengthy history, it remains evident that the State Fair serves not only as an annual celebration but as a unique destination that brings people from all walks of life together to create lifelong memories.”

For more information about the State Fair and to purchase tickets, please go here.


No matter how original, innovative or crazy your idea, someone else is also working on that idea. Furthermore, they are using notation very similar to yours. – Bruce J. MacLennan
