TEXAS STATE FAIR IS IN THE AIR

STATE FAIR OF TEXAS: We’re not quite sure where the line “Everything is bigger in Texas.” came from, but we have an inkling it may have something to do with our annual State Fair, which has been inflating our hearts and waistlines for more than a century.  Beloved by Texans and outsiders alike, the three-week-long spectacle will take place Sept. 29 – Oct. 22. If that seems like an eternity don’t worry, you can get an early fix at the 13th annual Big Tex Choice Awards food competition on Aug. 27 at 2pm in the Tower Building at Fair Park. Let’s be honest, Big Tex and rides are great and all, but most of us are really in it for the F-O-O-D.

Concessionaires are returning to their kitchens in preparation for another year of fair food frenzy and entries are currently being accepted for the competition, which will debut a few enhancements. The stakes have been raised and there will now be three winners instead of two crowned in 2017’s ceremony, receiving awards for “Best Taste – Sweet,” “Best Taste – Savory,” and “Most Creative.” With the addition of a third category, the number of available spots in the final round has increased, and the top 10 foods will be selected as finalists. Which basically means.. it’s on like Donkey Kong with the food this year!

For your viewing pleasure, we’ve included the following clip of our very own Taylor discovering the awesomeness that was last year’s chocolate-covered-bacon-on-a-stick. Is it September yet?
