Each year, as Big Tex straps on his belt buckle to stand tall, we know it's officially State Fair of Texas time!

This morning the 55-foot-tall mascot woke up wearing a Coronavirus face mask. It says his signature catch phrase "Howdy Folks!" Most of us get our annual pictures with the gentle giant, and he still plans to be available for drive-thru photo opps. Check out his schedule here.
