Big Tex is ready for the opening of the State Fair of Texas. The iconic 55 foot tall cowboy was lifted into place this morning dressed in his traditional red and blue Dickies shirts, his Shiner belt buckle, jeans and cowboy boots. Unlike last year Big Tex is not wearing a face mask but state fair officials say he was fully vaccinated in the off-season. The State Fair opens a week from today and runs through mid-October.
