State Fair of Texas Pictures
We survived the State Fair! Miles and miles of walking and lots of "not good for you, but fun to eat" food! We had the traditional corn dog, corn on the cob, and Fire and Ice, along with lots of water!! It seems that the fair has become really commercialized, you can buy anything in the exhibits building. They should change the name from exhibits to "retail stores inside". You could even climb in a dentist chair and get your teeth whitened! We rode the SkyWay across the fair and had a great view of the Dallas skyline and the Cotton Bowl. We finally agreed to ride what we thought was a mild ride, called the Mouse Chase. It started out calmly enough but within a few seconds any internal organs you wanted removed could have been jerked out in one sharp twist and turn! That was the end of my "fun" riding rides. We didn't ride the Ferris wheel, which happens to be 212 feet tall, the tallest Ferris wheel in the Western Hemisphere, enough said! All in all a great day but we were all worn out by that night!
