West Texas Fair and Rodeo is Back [VIDEO]
It’s time again for the 2011 West Texas Fair and Rodeo. From the very moment you set foot in the parking lot at the Taylor County Expo Center fair grounds the sights, sound and that familiar smell of funnel cakes, fajitas, turkey legs, Aggie fries and smoked brisket overwhelms your senses. While Sneak-a-Peek night was a lot slower than I can remember, it was perfect weather, not too cool, not too hot and obviously no rain, there wasn’t even so much as a whisk of wind, in the air. The fresh squeezed lemonade was tangy yet tasty sweet and the fajitas were Delicious, now time to take to the rides. While the kiddo rides near the round building were not open on Thursdays Sneak-a-Peek night, we found a couple of race cars the Wheaton and Fernandez kids could have their picture made on.
As the sun sets, the night comes alive with the West Texas Fair and Rodeo. There’s something about the fair being in town that puts everyone in a more fall, festive friendly attitude. I heard a lot of pardon me, thank you, your welcomed, and a whole bunch of Howdy, how Y’all doing? It’s what makes us so very different from the rest of the world, we really do care about one another, and while you might not get that cozy friendly feeling at the State Fair in Dallas you will find that the West Texas Fair has more law enforcement officers both in uniform and even more so undercover. The WTFR board wants to ensure that everyone feels safe and sound when you’re at the Taylor County Expo Center.
So, if you’re ready to head for the fair grounds check out a couple of these videos one of a dragon roller coaster and one of the HSU Cowboy Marching Band, something to get you in the mood and hankering for the lemonade, fajitas, Aggie fries and smoked turkey legs. See you at fair.
