Charli Rose McCain, 5, and Chance Gaidola, 7, experienced the State Fair of Texas for their first time this year. The two traded off on their fair-related musings.

“I like the rides. The dragon one was super duper fast! The people are nice. A lady won a game and she gave us her prizes. The food was good. I got ice cream. We liked the ice cream and the popsicles. We are waiting for the parade. It will have a bunch of people wearing music clothes. I’m going to be excited to see it!” 

As always, our State Fair of Texas guide is right here and freshly updated. Today, in addition to new Wednesday events, meet a few of the men and women who clean up at the canning competitions for jams and pickles.
