Fair Park In Dallas, TX Is One Of The Most Visited Sites In The Lone Star State But In A Few Years, Its Going To Have New Look.

If we're being perfectly honest here yall, we all can see that Fair Park is a need of an update. While some of the classic charm makes it feel special, a lot of the buildings in the complex are in falling apart.

Fair Park been standing for more than 130 years.

According to The Dallas Observer, Most of the buildings and structures haven't been updated in at least a decade, including the famed Cotton Bowl Stadium which is set to host another edition of the "Red River Rivalry" this weekend.

But thanks to Dallas voters who approved a proposition which would allow the city to raise its hotel tax by 2 percent to finance renovations for Fair Park's facilities and for the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center downtown.

The renovations will cover six Fair Park structures.

Construction on the Cotton Bowl will begin in January 2024 while other projects are set to begin soon. Let's take a look at the plans and get ready for the future of the Fair Park.
