Why I Love the State Fair of Texas

State Fair of TexasEvery year, three million individuals visit Fair Park, a National Historic Landmark, to attend the State Fair of Texas. The people who come represent every demographic in Texas. It is the place where the rich, the poor, the conservatives, the progressives, the cowgirls, the congresspeople and the kids all come. We eat the same foods, ride the same rides, have our photographs made in front of Big Texas. It’s a spectacle, for sure, and serves to remind us that we CAN all get along if we work at it.
