The State Fair of Texas…Fried Food and other fun!
Don’t forget to check out my Swanson Health Products Giveaway! It is open until 10/10/11.
The State Fair of Texas is one of the largest State Fairs in the United States. Living in the Dallas area, it’s a big deal. Our kids get a day off and a free ticket each year. My husband and I have not been to the fair in a few years. Last year our kids went with their grandparents. We decided to make a day of it this year, my husband took the day off from work.
We arrived at about 10:30 am. We played, we ate, we stayed till almost 6 pm. 😀
The plan.. see the Auto show, eat fried things, see the neat and over-priced items the vendors are selling, ride the rides, see a show or two. Have a great day of family fun.
If you do head to the fair, be safe, have fun and stop by the AT&T booth near the Colosseum. As the official wireless sponsor of the fair, AT&T has many COWs (cell towers on wheels) to enhance the network and the mobile experience of fair-goers. We found the AT&T booth to be fun and informative. We also were given cute little pull-string backpacks that sure came in handy for storing all the pamphlets and papers we collected during our day.
We had a lovely time at the fair. We tried many fried things.
We never found fried kool-ade. 😦 which made my daughter a very sad panda.
Here’s some pictures of a few of the fried items we tried.
*each item was split 4 ways* 😉
This was a number 1 pick for the parents. Batter dipped pineapple slice with whip cream and a cherry on top.
Fried Cookie Dough, what can I say….It just tasted doughy.
Fried Pizza. It was interesting. It did not taste like pizza though.
Fried salsa. Interesting.
Fried Potato Ball. I really liked this one! Meat (seasoned), rolled in mashed potatoes, rolled in breading, deep fried.
Fried Bananas….No one liked this one.
Funnel Cake fries. 🙂 Always a winner.
Other things we did.
Henna Tattoos. A panda for the tween and a skull with a bow for me.
Pictures of Big Tex.
The Auto Show.
A teen with and big, fast car dream (not gonna happen) ….&…. a fun rear view mirror picture of my tween and me.
Feathers, all the rage in your hair. There are clip on feathers and ones that are more permanently added into your hair.
The Killdares Celitc. Rock. Yes, that guy has a bagpipe. 😀
We had a wonderful time at the fair, returned to our car and found a flat tire. D’oh!
Grabbed some Pei Wei on the way home, ate a lovely dinner. Turned on our TV and it was broken, all double-vision-ey. Double D’oh!
Anyho, that’s why today’s post is a tad late. I had to buy a new TV this morning.
