Howdy, Folks! Yes, it's that time of year again and the State Fair of Texas has officially opened. If you have never experienced the State Fair, you are missing out. It is the largest state fair in the U.S. and it certainly does not disappoint. Just like everything else in Texas, it's big! Big Tex is your host and he greets you each day with a big, slow, "Howdy, Folks".
Yep, Born in Texas and Built by Texans. The beloved Tundra greets you at the entrance of the outdoor display:
Uh oh, this is what greeted me when I arrived on Saturday: lots of rain and some flooding reminiscent of last year's fair:
Lots of rain=really wet sneakers. Those hand dryers come in really handy on the wet days.
The show! Trackside Tina is a great addition this year with some great prizes, a little NHRA and a whole lot of Kyle Busch from the Toyota Racing NASCAR team:
Perhaps my favorite edition to Toyota Live this year is the new intro: new music, new graphics, and my picture on the Jumbotron!
Never a dull moment on the stage: dancing to our intro music with my co-host, Chris Petschler.
Sunday was the most incredible day with beautiful fall weather, the sun shining brightly, and more laughs onstage than my stomach could handle. Thanks for a great first weekend, Dallas! We have 20 more days at the State Fair of Texas, be sure to stop by and say "hi"!
