Newspaper and Yearbook go to the Fair


The aroma of deep-fried food, the shouts of people getting flung around on rides, and the sweaty, joyful, and patriotic appearance of everyone at the Texas State Fair is an unbeatable feeling that Texans get to experience one time a year.


Most of us have gone to the State Fair at least once in our lives, with many making a trip to the fair an annual occurrence. It’s almost a necessity, a responsibility rather, to pay the fair a visit and indulge in the various activities it has to offer.

LHHS’ Newspaper and Yearbook classes went to the fair on the first Tuesday in October, and here are some of our biggest takeaways:


  • Must try, thrilling, partially upside down ride = The Beast (a.k.a. The Hulk)
  • The Fun Houses are pretty fun, ig
  • Eat
  • Load your pockets (they will be empty by the end)
  • Having a Fletcher’s corny dogs is a requirement
  • Don’t go on the Crazy Mouse
  • Definitely go on the Crazy Mouse (results may vary)
  • Bring a hat or sunglasses
  • Go on the Log Ride when first getting there
  • Bring sunscreen


All that to say, the Texas State Fair is a great opportunity to have loads of fun with those you love most, and the LHHS Newspaper/Yearbook definitely recommends it.
