The State Fair of Texas returns next weekend and as we’ve mentioned before, we aren’t feelin’ it this year.
But that hasn’t stopped our cravings for fair food and the whole experience, especially on a smaller scale.
Even if you’re Team Big Tex and still plan to go this year, you can get a jump start this Thursday at Ferris Wheelers Backyard & BBQ.
Their annual pop-up, State Ferris of Wheelers, centers around the venue’s namesake Ferris wheel but adds so much more.
Additional fair food options (corn dogs, turkey legs, funnel cakes) will be available in addition to the traditional barbecue menu—plus fair-themed cocktails, too.
Play a few midway games, marvel at carnival entertainers, and go for a few spins around the big wheel.
It’s everything we Iove about the State Fair with far fewer people and much shorter lines.
And if you park at the farthest edge of the parking lot and pay attention to every vehicle as you walk to the restaurant?
Boom! There’s your car show.
