Big Tex Will Sport Some Brand New Boots This Year
The star of the Texas State Fair will be sporting some new boots this year and man do they look good.
Katie Sauceda of Keller designed the giant boots and has the honor of Big Tex donning her design after thousands voted in a contest that is all part of this year’s state fair theme – Celebrating Texas Creativity.
Ten men and a crane put the boots up early Friday morning. It's quite a picture even with no one in them. The colorful boots have a big ole Texas flag, peppers, stars and all things Texan.
Katie is the first winner of a public designing contest, but the fair announced they will continue to have the contest in the future. So start drawing you have about a year.
The fair is right around the corner and will run in fair park in Dallas September 27th through October 20th.
