Giveaway: Two Season Passes to the State Fair of Texas

Christi Erpillo of The Dock restaurant has been kind enough to give me two season passes to the State Fair of Texas. Usually, these passes are for employees, but she’s made a very special exception here. With these magical passes, you can get into the fair for free and every day until the Fair closes. Didn’t like Erpillo’s fried Samoas the first time? Go again. And again. And again.

To enter this giveaway, just state your favorite thing about the State Fair. (Please keep your comments clean.) I’ll enter all your names randomly into a drawing and pick a winner by 5 p.m. today. You can either come to our office to pick up the tickets or we can mail them to you. You pick.

    my favorite thing would be if you gave the passes to amy anderson who typed that she had never been.

    Deep Fried Nutter Butter cookies. I find most of the deep-friend items to be kind of terrible or, at best, nothing more than X + fry, with no real marriage of flavor. The Deep Fried Nutter Butter cookies are different. The batter binds with the cookie, which just yields to the bite without being soft or spongy, and peanut butter flavor intensifies 10 fold. Simply life-changing.

    Fletcher’s corn dogs for sure :)

    The fair makes me feel like a kid again because it brings back so many good memories. I love going with my parents still and hearing all of the stories of when they went as kids and young adults and about when they brought us as children.

    Fletcher’s Corny Dog and Jack’s Mexican Food-love their green hot sauce. Car show is favorite attraction (besides eating).

    The smells – but in a good way! I mean the aroma of fried foods, mustard, cotton candy. The animal barn. Autumn. It always brings back such happiness.

  • Lindsay

    The petting zoo, the tastes, the sounds and the smells. Yes, even the animal smells.

  • WB

    The petting zoo, the smell of roasted corn and cotton candy, and Boris the Giant Boar.

    My favorite thing is the free samples at the tasting pavilion. Free is fun. Even standing in line for a thimble of ice cream.

    The State Fair competitions. Like stepping back into 1955. Makes me want to learn how to quilt, bake or pickle.

    Cajun fried turkey legs. Hands down the best way to eat a hunk of poultry.
