San Diego County Fair

If you thought the first week of Texas on Tour at the San Diego County Fair was fun, last week couldn’t hold a candle to what was in store for week two.

Our Texas road show was filled with folks wanting to see Texas, and the Lone Star State did not disappoint whether people were riding the Texas waterways, discovering Texas in our dome theater or getting some sun on our Gulf Coast beaches. At every stop, people have been excited to learn about all there is to see and do in Texas.

With a week full of stars like The Beach Boys, Big Time Rush and REO Speedwagon, Texas had its own lone star shining bright on our main stage: Warren Hood from Austin, Texas, who brought the true meaning of fiddling to sunny San Diego! People surrounded our footprint just to listen to the sounds of Texas. With a sweet, southern, new-grass sound and a hint of the blues, San Diegans loved him and his music!

All that excitement led up to the grand finale on the Fourth of July, the day America declared its independence. Fireworks lit up the sky, and Texas on Tour at the San Diego County Fair ended with a bang!

Alright y’all, it’s time to head up the coast to our next stop. Let’s see who can make it there first! Check out to see where we’ll stop next. Can’t wait to see you there!
