State Fair of Texas

'Tis the Season ... for the State Fair Parade!

Danny Fulgencio spent this glorious First Day of the Fair where he's always perched this time of the year: on Main Street, along the parade route for the State Fair of Texas's kick-off parade that's a little bit o' this and a whole lotta that. One of Dallas's finer traditions -- just the right shade of Big City with an appropriate dash of Small Town. A slide show's forthcoming for those of you who couldn't make it downtown today; some of us are working, after all, and trying not to watch Rangers-Rays (which isn't hard at this point). A few more photos follow till then.
