We go to The State Fair every year. It’s always hard to dress for because it’s in October and the days start and finish cold, but hit right about scorching in the middle sometimes. Layers are a must.
This year I went with a casual dress, leggings, a knit jacket and of course, cowboy boots. It’s the TEXAS State Fair, after all.
This outfit served me well. We had a long day of fun, shows and FOOD.
We ate and drank:
Fried Butter (balls of butter frozen, wrapped in dough and deep fried)
2 very large plastic cups of boxed White Zinfandel. (Because we like to keep it classy.)
Pork Chips (I ate these solo; thin sliced pork, battered in peppered corn meal and deep friend, served with mustard. These were my favorite of the day)
2 Large Iced SWEET teas
Green Goblins (Cherry Peppers, stuffed with Spicy Chicken and guacamole, battered, deep fried and covered in queso. SO GOOD)
Fired Texas Pecan Pie
And I think that covers it.
People approach The Fair in all different ways. Some people are there for the food only. Some the rides, the games, or the art. Nathan and I concentrate on the shows, and we saw several:
Pirates (Comedic High Dive Dare devil troupe)
The Dog Show (Frisbee acrobatics, diving and races)
The BMX Stunt Show
The Car Show
MUSIC SEEN: ROCK 'N' ROLL PHOTOJOURNALISTS (Featuring Rock and Roll: Lynn Goldsmith And It’s Always Rock and Roll: The Work of Photojournalist Janet Macoska)
The Butterfly Gardens
The Light Show
We had a great time and were so glad to get home to the comfort of our bed and our electric blanket after the cold we endured for the Parade and Light Show, but it was worth it. We can’t wait til next year!
