I love this time of year. A break from the heat, football, and the State Fair of Texas! My daughter and I started a tradition years ago of attending together. Seems the others in the family didn’t find as much enjoyment of the fair as we did. So, even now, she wants to go to the fair with her daddy. And daddy sure wants to go with her. It really is a magical time!
Here are some hints for those that want to save some $$ when heading to Fair Park:
DART Combo Ticket: Available at Kroger Food Stores. $16 buys 1 general admission to 2009 State Fair of Texas & round-trip transportation on DART the day of your visit. The new green line drops off at front gate and a second station is located within easy walking distance to the MLK entrance.
