Fall is in the air.  Homes are selling, football season is in full swing, Baylor is ranked and has a Heisman Trophy Candidate and it is no longer 127 degrees every day.  Get outside with friends and family and enjoy freedom and fellowship.

October is always a fun time in the Dallas area because the famous State Fair of Texas opens and runs from September 30 through October 23. This year the State Fair of Texas is celebrating it's 125th anniversary with its famous (or infamous) food concotions and entertainment. Some of this years newest food creations consist of Buffalo Chicken in a Flapjack, Fried Bubblegum
and Deep Fried Texas Salsa!! Of course, there's always the fair favorite Fletchers Corn Dog. 

Here's a couple of ways to get discount admission:

Any Day: McDonald's offers $4 off General Admission with one of their State Fair coupons (available on tray liner or bag stuffer) any day of the Fair. A free child ticket (with purchase of general admission) coupon is also distributed by McDonald’s. Offer may not be combined with any other offer.
