South Texas State Fair opening this week
It won't be long before the gates open to the South Texas State Fair at Ford Park.
The fair opens Thursday with opening ceremonies and in the meantime the rides continue to go up.
Prizes for the midway are being sorted through and so are the many local charities the fair will benefit.
The YMBL has a long list of charities they will help throughout Southeast Texas and that is one of the really good things the fair will do.
