Tim Phillips is on his 15th non-consecutive visit to the State Fair of Texas.

“I might not have made it every year, but pretty much. It’s a tradition for us. We enjoy it. We mainly just do the shows and the various booths. The one thing I try to hit every time we come is the car show. I’m not really shopping for a car, I just like looking. We sat in the Camaro for about 10 years in a row and finally bought one. We also like to get a caricature done. We have three hanging in the kitchen. We’re trying to get our fourth, but there’s a long line at all the caricature booths. It’s packed!”
