Every year we talk about how to cover the State Fair of Texas. And this year, we decided to really explore it. Today, we published a comprehensive guide to the State Fair that will be updated as the event goes through its three week run. I hope it’s useful, and I hope you’ll tell us if we missed anything. (To come: Profiles of the canning folks. Kathy Wise is judging a pie contest. Christiana Nielson is going to barf judging as many Midway rides as she can. We’re going to make Eve Hill-Agnus eat two corndogs. Join us.)
That guide is right here. But this post is for a different reason: Photographer Jason Janik is wandering Fair Park today, meeting the dedicated fairgoers who were there on opening day. Head to the attached gallery to see who he found.
