Big Tex is here and I'm probably at the fair!

All State Fair All the Time!
There's a ton of stuff here, and I have something new this year. Whether you're planning a trip to the fair later or just want to enjoy vicariously, this is where you'll find the goods!

Follow me at the fair - on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook OR if you're not into those social media sites, check out this instantly updating live blog page that looks like a social media stream.

Saturday, Oct. 2

I skipped Opening Day this year, so this will be my exploring day - checking prices, eating a bit, revisiting all the traditional spots as well as a few new ones and reporting back.

Sunday, Oct. 2
This is my foodie day! Fletcher's Corny Dogs has invited me to join them for a corny dog AND a chance to meet the stars of Deep Fried Dynasty. I'll be tasting something at each of these fair food booths!
