Every year the fair rolls through town. And we all eat fried food on sticks. But in DFW when the State Fair hits town its a culinary collection unlike any carnival you've seen.

From September 28th through October 21st you can go and try out all of the championship foods yourself. But bring a wheelbarrow. Both for all the food to try, and for all the money you'll need to eat them. The State Fair is NOT cheap. But the food may be worth it to some of you.

Here are the finalists for the Big Tex Choice Awards, which are given out every year to the finalists in two main categories, sweet, and savory. For full descriptions of each fair food click here to the BigTex.com website.
