DFW's Other FairDid you know that the DFW area has another fair aside from the huge Texas State Fair? From now through Aug. 27, you can come to the North Texas State Fair and Rodeo in Denton. Over 20 musical acts will take the stage over the 9 days of the fair, and you can also enjoy rodeo events, livestock shows, and – of course – carnival rides and kids’ attractions.

Kids 6 and under are admitted to the fair for free. Kids 7-12 and $5, and adults are $15. Buy your tickets online here. For prices on rides and carnival attractions, see this page. You may be able to get discounted carnival armbands and free kids’ admissions at your local O’Reilly Auto Parts – I recommend calling your store ahead of time to make sure they have the coupons.
