Dec 14, 2012 - Fun at the State Fair

Riding into Dallas on a charter bus, coach bus, party bus, mini bus, passenger coaches or school bus hired from Bus Rental Dallas, between the months of September and October, head down to the State Fair of Texas.

Originally known as the Dallas State Fair and Exposition, the State Fair began in 1886. Organized by a group of Dallas businessmen, the Dallas State Fair was primarily a livestock show in the beginning. The State Fair grew from year to year, adding more attractions such as concerts, balloon ascents, displays of farm machinery, and appearances by public figures. At the turn of the century, with the invention of the automobile and plane, automobile racing was held to replace the loss of horse racing, and flight displays were held to thrill the crowds.

The State Fair gained in popularity each year, becoming a key fall attraction for visitors. In 1968, more than 3 million people visited the State Fair for the first time. Since the 60s, each year’s Fair has been staged to a theme. At the dawn of the new millennium, major corporate sponsorship has played a key role in the State Fair.

Texas is a very big state, and traveling across Texas to attractions like the State Fair of Texas is made easier by renting a charter bus from Bus Rentals Dallas.
