Kansas State Fair

With not even a week to spare, our Texas road show headed south down I-35 and right on over to Route 50 to settle in for a wild ride at the Kansas State Fair. Loaded with “sheep thrills,” this fair is proving itself to be a perfect fit for Texas on Tour!

Positioned at that end of the midway in the shadow of the Ferris wheel, our virtual trip to the Lone Star State can easily be seen by all. But more important, it’s seeing the virtual Texas vacations that can be enjoyed right here at the fair. No strangers to a Texas adventure, Kansans were excited to have us back in their state, and if you don’t believe me, ask Karen Shelton from Wichita, who said, “My boss came here last year when y’all were at RiverFest and this was all she talked about!”

Come out and create your own unforgettable moments in the Texas Gulf Coast. You can let the kids run around on the beach without leaving the fair. You could even take a family picture with a Texas sand castle. The memories don’t stop there because you’ll still have time to watch the millions of bats that fly out from underneath the Congress Avenue Bridge in Austin every night.

I could go on for days talking about all of the great vacation opportunities in Texas and the virtual adventures that can be had at the Kansas State Fair, but I don’t want to spoil it for you. We’ll be in town for another week, so there’s still time to enjoy a piece of Texas. Can’t wait to see you!
