Big Tex Rides to the Rescue

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

After two consecutive depressing losses by our beloved America’s Team, the best Cowboy in Dallas is likely a 52-foot tall fellow named Big Tex. And just when we need him, the icon of our State Fair is rising above Fair Park to beckon us back to The Midway. Starting today, Sept 24 through Oct 17, head to southeast Dallas to gorge on Fletcher’s corny dogs, Jack’s fries, funnel cakes and a weight-watcher’s nightmare of other State Fair diet busters. Sports fans will love that this year’s event has a special focus on football, with tributes to Tom Landry, an exhibit about the upcoming Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium, and of course, the Red River Rivalry between Texas & OU on Saturday, Oct. 2.
