Thanks to the good ole pandemic, we didn't get to enjoy the Ferris Wheel, the Gravatron, the Slingshot, the live music or the fantastic food of the East Texas State Fair last year. Things have changed for this year, though, and it's certainly welcome to be able to enjoy the fair once again this year. To make that excitement even greater, tickets are now available to be purchased online.
