This weekend is one of the craziest weekends in Dallas every year. It’s the last weekend of the Texas State Fair and TX-OU weekend – when the fans of the Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners descend on Dallas for the Red River Shootout!
For those readers not from the Lone Star State, you’ve probably heard a little about the importance of football in Texas… This weekend is a perfect example. It’s serious business and brings in a significant amount of money to the local economy.
I’ve lived in Dallas for a long time, but as my Dad would say, “I don’t have a dog in that hunt,” so I typically get out of town or lay low avoiding the malls and staying in whatever part of town is likely to be least popular with the tourists!
Here’s a little taste of the State Fair 2009 for those not from around here! :)
