A short quiz...

Quick! What do the following have in common:

  • Sam Houston

  • Molly Bailey, Circus Queen of Texas

  • Mary Poppins

  • Agent K

  • George Washington Carver

  • The Mavs Man

  • The Ice Girls

  • Texas Hooper

  • Two adults in butterfly costumes

  • Little Big Tex

  • Tom Leppert, Mayor of Dallas

  • A DART Train

Any guesses? It is a somewhat random assortment of individuals and costumed characters.

What if I told you that everyone mentioned above were part of the opening of the State Fair of Texas? And they all rode the DART train from the American Airlines Center to Fair Park this morning?

Because they all did. Together.


If only they all could have sat down and shared a helping of fried butter it would have been the best (most random) day ever.

Molly Bailey was there? So cool. :)

Ditto on George Washington Carver. I wrote a report on him in 5th grade, which included a hand-drawn (by me) filmstrip, so I have a soft spot for him.

Did you get to see them all arrive?

Yes, I did. I actually got to put Molly and Sam on the train myself, and saw Mary Poppins arrive with her entourage.
