Snaps from the State Fair of Texas 2017

The Hall of State had an exhibit about a political cartoonist named John Knott:

One of Knott’s regular characters was “Old Man Texas.”



The Hall of State also had an amazing World War I exhibit and Texas’ and the country’s roles in the war.

Some shots from the Midway:


Kids ate up and down the Midway and then rode this . . .

From the Texas Tower:

Tower of Texas underbelly–

Let sleeping pigs lie . . . lol. I know many pigs that lie!

The baby burros sure were cute!

Llama snarl?

A huge porcupine at a petting zoo? Hmmm.

And finally, got the requisite Big Tex shot. Poor fella is still out of proportion.
