State Fair of Texas planning drive-thru food and photo event
DALLAS - There will be no State Fair of Texas this year but you’ll still be able to get some of the experience.
The Big Tex Fair Food Drive-Thru is happening over several weekends in September and October.
You can drive through Fair Park to buy Fletcher’s Corny Dogs and other familiar fair foods. You can also take a photo with Big Tex.
The 55-foot-tall cowboy will be wearing a face mask for the first time in history.
“As an icon of the Lone Star State and a true Texan, Big Tex will do his part as a good neighbor to keep the community safe by adding the latest and greatest accessory to his wardrobe for 2020 – a Big Tex-sized face mask. In a year of many firsts, this historic event will offer Fair lovers the opportunity for a once-in-a-lifetime photo and experience,” the State Fair of Texas said in a news release.
Proceeds from the event will help fund next year’s fair, support its non-profit initiatives and benefit the North Texas Food Bank.
