Arizona State Fair

As we pulled into Phoenix for the Arizona State Fair, we knew we wanted to end this year’s tour across America with a bang, and that’s exactly what we plan to do! These folks in Arizona are wild about Texas and we’re happy to tell them all about it. We’re wrapping up our tour but there’s still a couple more days to come and check out Tje Austin on the entertainment stage and explore the waterways of Texas on our virtual kayaks! We’ll be here through Friday, so if you’re in the area come on out and say howdy!

As the sun is setting on Texas on Tour for this year, we look forward to what adventures lie ahead in 2011. We've had an awesome year full of many memories and many friends made along the way. If we didn't visit your city during the 2010 tour, perhaps we will be making a stop in 2011 somewhere near you.

Please check early next year to see our updated schedule and if we're close, come by and learn what Texas is all about. If you simply cannot wait until next year to see us again, go ahead and visit Texas for the real deal! You're always welcome!

Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta

At our stop at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, Texas on Tour is proud to welcome one of our sponsors -- SeaWorld San Antonio, and their furry -- and not so furry -- friends. Representatives from SeaWorld have been entertaining, educating, and encouraging people to travel to Texas and make San Antonio their next vacation destination. Guests to Texas on Tour were surprised to see appearances made by a lemur, wallaby, alligator and boa constrictor! It's amazing how animals can bring smiles to the faces of everyone in attendance.

The Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta is well known for its incredible hot air balloons shaped like animals, but attendees never imagined that they would see real live animals at the Texas on Tour exhibit! For more information on how you can visit SeaWorld San Antonio check out

Along with our friends from SeaWorld, we also have Tje Austin playing on the entertainment stage in the afternoons. So Texas on Tour is the place to be! Check out the video clip to see Tje singing a song from his latest album Xperience.

If you live in Albuquerque or are going to be in the area, check out Texas on Tour and SeaWorld at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta through Sunday, October 10th. If you can’t make it to Albuquerque, then I sure hope we get to see you at the Arizona State Fair in Phoenix. I hate to say it folks, but that will be our final stop for the 2010 tour. So come out and visit us!
