State Fair of Texas: How will the drive-thru event work?

Here’s how the State Fair of Texas drive-thru event will work

The State Fair of Texas may not be happening, but fans can still get their state fair food fix! Here’s what the State Fair is planning on doing so Texans don’t miss out on the food.

We may be missing out on the State Fair of Texas experience this year, but, for the first time in its 134-year history, the fair is hosting “Big Tex Fair Food Drive-Thru.”  What is it about and how will it work? We’ve got all the details you need to know, below.

Don’t want to miss out on state fair staples and favorites? What about your annual photo with Big-Tex? Even though we won’t be able to be among a large crowd or friends and family (and miss out on all the rides), you can still have some fun!
