Free Sensodyne products at the State Fair of Texas

Next, they hand you a toothbrush with your choice of toothpaste and a brand new toothbrush holder. They also hand you a cup for […]

Pig Races at the 2015 State Fair of Texas

The Pig Races at the 2015 State Fair of Texas were similar to past years. I enjoyed the pig races, but they were predictable. The Pig Races take place in the Pan-Am Arena. Before the race, four cheerleaders are chosen from the children in the crowd and given pom poms and instructions on how to […]

Live Music at the State Fair of Texas - The Os

I enjoyed the performance of The OsĀ at the 2015 State Fair of Texas. It was neat seeing them playing the guitar, harmonica, drum, and tambourine at the same time. They had foot pedals that allowed them to play percussion at the same time as their other instruments. Very impressive! Their moments in between songs were […]

Sausage on a Stick at the State Fair of Texas

I had my traditional taste of a sausage on a stick at the fair on the day of the TX OU game. It was way too greasy. I couldn't even finish it. It also gave me heartburn and seemed to be over spiced. I still enjoy sausage, but I will stick to less greasy varieties. […]
