The East Texas State Fair opened Friday, Sept. 21, and continues through this weekend. Make the most of it while you can!

The fair brings together families, exhibits, carnival rides and more year after year in Tyler. Whether it's the funnel cake, the livestock, or the quality entertainment that you're looking for you'll find it this year.

If you're into live music, you'll have an opportunity to see lots of great local entertainment this year. Make plans to see some Tyler's best and brightest on the stage each night.

If magic is more you're style, then don't miss Sheldon Casavant performing nightly at 8:00 pm.

two years ago, I made a special trip out the fair to sample a variety of the food offered. If you missed out on this before, you'll have to watch again and make plans to enjoy all the fair has to offer.
