“Every year a winner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Been going each August since 1974, my freshman year of college and have only missed one time. Get to the fairgrouds about 9am and get home a little before 11pm. Love it. Looking forward to many, many more years.

“The Best Fair food in America”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Hey you can get anything on a stick. From corn dogs to hot dish from cheese to gator. The best people watching anywhere in the state. Now I wouldn't go here for anything other than the fair which is the last 2 weeks before labor day. But for those 2 weeks it has some great concerts and the best fair food around. Who doesn't love cheese curds?

“Back at the Fair”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Went in August 2011 with my best friend. Lived in Texas fo 9 years and was glad to be back and visit the fair once again. Nothing like it. Had to hug the pillars as I walked in.
