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.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
