Big Tex Says Thank You Please Drive Thru
Fans and Foodies REJOICE!
Our great State Fair of Texas is now being offered as a drive-thru experience for 2020!
I don't know the last time I was so excited about an event pivoting to meet the demands of this global pandemic but I can't sit down knowing our awesome State Fair of Texas has found a way for fans AND foodies to enjoy some of the revelry of this historic Texas event!
That's right, even COVID couldn't keep the State Fair of Texas down! "Where there is a will, there's a way!" Well that and also our COVID numbers are going down.
Here is how the State Fair of Texas powers that be are going to run the show for 2020. Big Tex says "Thank you, please drive-thru!"
The event this year includes the opportunity to take a scheduled photo with Big Tex himself - yep, he too will be wearing a mask! Wondering how many flat sheets it took to make it. As well as a drive-thru to grab some of the staple food Fair Food Junkies can't get enough of... Fletcher's corndogs and fried Oreos too!
Yes, Fair Food Junkies are a thing!
With those folks in mind, the State Fair of Texas is offering a hopefully only once in a lifetime opportunity to just drive-thru, grab a photo with Big Tex all while getting some grub and enjoying the nostalgia of the famous fairgrounds.
