Big Tex is standing tall and ready for the State Fair of Texas to swing open its gates.
The iconic landmark of the State Fair was carefully pieced together — all 55 feet of him — and stood up Friday.
Big Tex is back for his 65th year at Fair Park — five years after he was destroyed by an electrical fire.
As usual, he’ll be wearing clothes provided by Fort Worth-based Dickies, and greeting patrons as they visit the State Fair, which begins Sept. 29 and runs through Oct. 22.
