“Fun fair park”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

A decent fun fair park. I did not attend at night, but had a stroll during the day. It's close to Dallas downtown so it will not take long to get here. It's just next to the Cotton Bowl so you can't miss it. The "wheel" is impressive. It's not that big tough and is not close to fun fair parks like for example in Vienna.

“Be prepared for lots of outside walking”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

Fairgrounds are going to be sprawling so lots of walking is a given. December may be kind of an odd time to visit. It was chilly but I had some slack time so off from downtown on the light rail I went. I was hoping to see high quality architecture of the arts and crafts era. What I found was a group of weathered buildings and sculptures in various states of disuse. The Texas State House was the one exception. The interior is quite impressive and has had upkeep attention.

“Spectacular show...!!”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

The chinese lantern show was really beautiful and spectacular. The dazzling lights and displays here are a must see. The tickets+parking are overpriced but you should see it once.

“Fair Fun”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

AWSOME!!!
We go every year and it seems to get better every time. It's a little $$$ but well worth it to see the smiles on my kids faces. Have to time it right to beat the crowd though.

“Great Fair”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

Had a great time and enjoyed all the rides and sights. Came for the Red River Rivalry. Texas fans were quite slopply drunk but tolerated them.
