The state fair will be open Sept. 28 to Oct. 22.

The annual State Fair of Texas will open on Sept. 28 at 10 a.m. and closes Oct. 22. The first day hosts the opening ceremony at 7 p.m. performed by the United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, the Kilgore Rangerettes and many more.

“I go every year because usually my friends invite me, and my mom’s a teacher so we get tickets,” freshman Hannah Brookshire said. “[I like the] rides because you feel like you’re gonna throw up. My favorite one goes really high up and just spins you around until you feel like you’re gonna fall out. I don’t really like the food there because it’s all fried, but the state fair is pretty cool though.”

The fair’s theme this year is “Celebrating Texas Innovation” in honor of the many inventions brought to life in Texas. The fair will last until Oct. 21.

“[Because I’m from New York] I’ve never been to the State Fair here,” French teacher Lisa Diena said. “I would take [my son] Amir to the petting zoo and probably ride some of the carnival rides, those sound fun.”

Check out The Red Ledger next week for a full State Fair preview.

Joeley Hedgcoxe, Staff Writer
Back in the journalism swing with new ambitions, sophomore Joeley Hedgcoxe is hitting The Red Ledger again as a photographer, going with God’s calling and making a change in her study habits this year. She’s a dedicated performer for the school’s Color Guard, and feels her best when she’s performing with the rest of her beloved team or surrounded by her houseplants. Her favorite movies are made by Wes Anderson, and she’s a music lover at heart, never leaving home without her earbuds. Her favorite song is Alien Boy by Oliver Tree, and she’s a huge fan of Joji, Bastille, and Gorillaz. She spends her free time on facetime calls with friends, listening to music, painting or spinning her guard equipment outside. Whether she’s a plant lover, performer, photographer, or just herself, Joeley wouldn’t change anything about her.
