State Fair of Texas extends hours for final weekend

The State Fair of Texas will be open longer for the final weekend.

The extended hours are meant to give people more time to visit the fair and hopefully help vendors make a little money.

The State Fair has been plagued by bad weather this year. It has rained nearly every day since it opened last month.

This Saturday and Sunday, the fair will stay open an hour later and close at 11 p.m. It will open at 7 a.m. both days.
