Video: Watch Big Tex Bust A Move

State Fair of Texas

Big Tex is one of the most iconic features of the State Fair of Texas. It’s been dubbed the quirkiest landmark in the country, after all. The oversized cowboy just became a little more awesome in this video.

KERA's Dane Walters went out to the State Fair to capture the big guy. We knew Big Tex would have 11 movements this year, but who knew he was this funky? 

There's still time to swing by the fair if you haven't already -- it's running until Oct. 19. 

Former KERA staffer Krystina Martinez was an assistant producer. She produced local content for Morning Edition and She also produced The Friday Conversation, a weekly series of conversations with North Texas newsmakers. Krystina was also the backup newscaster for the Texas Standard.
