The State Fair of Texas is an event for both the young and the young at heart. From inventive and great tasting food to thrilling rides to the annual Red River Rivalry, it's always a great time being greeted by Big Tex with his signature "Hooowdy y'all." The fair is only about a month long, though. For the months in between, the fair has a fun and free program for the youngest of fair goers to keep them engaged throughout the summer.
