Where everything is huge -- and deep fried

The joys of shooting the one-of-a-kind State Fair of Texas

Published September 22, 2010 1:01AM (EDT)

It's that time of year again, at least in these parts, for the State Fair. Our northern neighbors have seen their own state fairs come and go, due to pending weather, perhaps, or some other traditions. But in Texas -- in our own little infernal ecosystem -- it's finally decent enough to walk around outside by mid-October. It's a hope anyway -- some days can still reach the 90s -- but there is the expectation that soon things will not simply melt.
