It's almost time....
Almost time to ride the rides, play the midway games, eat your weight in cony dogs, funnel cakes and crazy fried concoctions. The State Fair of Texas opens THIS Friday and last minute preparations are underway.
There's also a stepped up security presence at this year's state fair as authorities expect more than 100,000 fairgoers a day in and around the Fair Park area.
