The State Fair of Texas.. Fried Food Welcomed!

Fried Latte's, Margaritas, Butter, Twinkies, Ice Cream, you name it and they can fry it! Once a year the fair comes to Dallas bringing in Fletchers corn dogs, lemonade, the ferris wheel, games, and cars. They have the fair every year down around the cotton bowl stadium. Like they say, "Everything is Bigger in Texas."
The cotton bowl.. Where OU beats Texas every year :)

This was Dick's first time to the Texas State Fair so we saw EVERYTHING! My favorite was the animal tent that Children's hospital puts on every year. They have zebras, goats, giraffes, ducks, pigs, turtles, kangaroos that you can feed and pet! I think we spent like an hour in there! Here are a few pics of the little guys..

We also we enjoyed the best Corn Dogs ever made... EVER made! Fletchers con dogs with a little bit of mustard is the only fair food a person needs! Incredible and I'm not a huge hot dog fan!

Another fun part are all the buildings that you can walk through. They have a huge car show, arts and crafts, cooking shows, and lots of sampling. One really cool exhibit every year is the statues made out of BUTTER ONLY!
This year it was an OU vs. Texas games scene. How would like to have that job?! lol

We rode one ride that dick made me get on that I thought I was going to DIE! I hate fair rides. They are sketchy. This one went in the year flipping and spinning. NEVER AGAIN.
It was a gorgeous fall Saturday and the last weekend to attend the fair this year! What fried foods could they possibly cook next?
