Samantha, I remember it well. I grew up in Dallas, Texas and we always went to the State Fair each year. It was a high light of the Fall season. I remember very good "corney dogs" and pitching my nickles to win a baby chicken. Thank goodness I never won the baby chicken.....LOL! I would love to go again and see how it has changed. Been in California for a long time. Have a beautiful week!

Win a baby chicken ... how awesome! Prizes now are Basketballs & Stuffed Toys :) The TX State Fair has grown to include some amazing new entertainment shows, fun livestock activities, midway type games & rides, all while still keeping traditional fun ... like the famous Corny Dogs & Funnel Cakes! Plan a trip and come visit Jeanean :)

For whatever reason, whenever I hear the words "State Fair" I always think of 2 other words: "Fried Food". Good thing the Fair is so large so that you can walk off all the food! :) What were your faves this year?
