DALLAS, TX -- It's beginning to look a lot like... State Fair of Texas time, y'all!

Big Tex is back at his home spot. He's being installed ahead of next week's opening day.

This year, the 55-foot Dallas icon is decked out in a newly designed outfit from head-to-toe. This year, you'll notice our buddy moves more as he says 'Howdy, ya'll!'

The State Fair of Texas begins Friday, September 26 and ends Sunday, October 19.
