State Fair of Texas in Dallas wraps up 24-day run

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

Visitors to the State Fair of Texas have spent an estimated $37 million on the food, rides and other fun.

Fair officials in Dallas late Sunday released preliminary economic figures hours before the end of the 24-day run. A parade Sunday night that traditionally helps end the fair had to be canceled due to the large crowd. Attendance figures weren't immediately released.

Fair spokeswoman Sue Gooding says good weather played a role in attracting people to the State Fair, which this year featured a new version of towering greeter Big Tex. The 55-foot-tall cowboy-styled icon replaces a version that burned last year.

Gooding says Big Tex will be dismantled Tuesday and stored on the fairgrounds until next year's expo.
