Goodbye Big Tex

After 60 years, Big Tex has seen his last state fair.

After growing up in the Dallas area for 16 years of his life, this was a life changing moment for me, when Angela Thomas from 710 KEEL sent me a picture of Big Tex up in flames.

This morning after 10:30, right after the doors opened to the State Fair of Texas, Big Tex went up in a big ball of flames, which has apparently been deemed an electrical fire. Witnesses said that the fire took only 10 minutes for Big Tex to end up as a smoldering skeleton.

Fear not, Texas State Fair officials have immediately said this is not the end of Big Tex. They are already making plans to build a bigger and better Big Tex for next year’s state fair.

Here are some of the pictures captures at the scene.
