Went last weekend.
The weather was perfect - not the usual Texas Fair weather Thankfully.
The new Fletcher Spicy corny dogs were good. Expensive but good.
If you go check out the new Ford GT. That is one sweet car. All you need is and extra 142K to take one home.
Best Regards

Only reason to go is for the corn dogs an funnel cakes. When I realized how much they ended up costing I haven't been back.

If they would put it in a better Neighborhood, Or clean up the one it is in, I'd go and take my kids. I haven't been in about 12 years.

Corn dogs, funnel cakes, and OU kicking the crap out of Texas for five years in a row.

Got to love the State Fair!!!

It's a required 'rite of passage' in Texas.

Time and budget constraints forced me to choose between taking the kid to Gunstock or the State Fair.

We'll see you at Gunstock!

How come you haven't just asked people from this board to wrangle your kids with you? Seems like a fair amount of family people from TX here. Do the Safety in numbers kind of thing.

During the week in the daylight is not bad at all. CHL's are allowed too. Find some coupons though to help with the overpriced admission. Ya know the food aint cheap.

It's a great place to go with kids, and despite what the coupons say, the nice little old ladies that run the ticket stands will take multiple coupons. As far as the claims that it's in a bad neighborhood, they have thorough police coverage and CHLs are allowed, as well. I didn't feel uneasy about being there in the least. I doubt I would go without kids, but the Children's Hospital petting zoo and the deep fried ________ makes it worth a yearly trip. There are great photo spots throughout, as well.

Edited to add: Oh yeah, as long as I'm there, I like to go to the auto show. And yes, I did catch the Ford GT. Had to excuse myself for a few minutes...

Yeah, that Ford GT is pretty hot. For those that haven't seen it, here's a pic. Click on the pic to see a bit more:

I almost always win. The trick is to fire in the shortest burst possible and to only work on the outline of the star. Don't waste BBs in the center of the star. You should be able to knock most of the star out with about half of the BBs. Use the second half of the BBs to try to knock off the little shreds of red star that are still hanging around the hole that you shot out...

Hell, that's the only thing I CAN win.
