Hello there! Just before celebrating the one year anniversary of the blog, I went to the annual State Fair of Texas, one of the biggest, loudest, craziest state fairs in the country. I actually went twice. Once with my friends around dusk (pictured above) and just this last weekend, during the day with my family.
I took a bunch of photos in an attempt to capture all the sights, smells and tastes of the fair.
|Plush donut prizes at the Midway.....sooo wanted one of these for no reason at all.|
|Funnel cake flavored ale. Didn't quite taste like funnel cake but was rimmed in powdered sugar.|
|There are so many authentic Art Deco buildings in Fair Park, sometimes you wonder if you stumbled onto a Gotham City set.|
|Fried Sweet Texas. Basically a fried peach dumpling.|
On my second trip I went this past Friday with family from out of town. This time our sights were set on some lovable livestock and the fabled Craft Beer tent.
|Again, all the expo building have beautiful painted designs depicting Texas history. This is inspired by the Mexican influence.|
|This rooster represents the French influence in Texas.|
|Oh shit ya'll. This deep fried grilled cheese sandwich with cold tomato soup dipping sauce was the the best!!|
|We found the Craft Beer Tent! And my cute grandma in the background.|
|More beautiful architectural interest.|
|The fair had some of the largest and prettiest chickens you have ever seen. This one was my favorite.|
|Tornado taters. A spiral cut potato, fried and covered in nacho cheese and ketchup.|
|Now for the petting zoo.|
|Oh man, naps are the best.|
|This llama is so over it. Whatever "it" is.|
