Top Stories: Questions Loom Over Fair Park's Future; Taking A Trip On Dallas' Streetcar


The top local stories this afternoon from KERA News: Dallas City Council members have lots of questions about the future of Fair Park. That was apparent Monday afternoon as the council heard more about the controversial plan to hand over Fair Park to a private nonprofit foundation.

  Other stories this afternoon:

  • Starting Monday morning, the free streetcar from downtown Dallas to Methodist Dallas Medical Center has expanded. It stretches even farther into Oak Cliff, and the ground-breaking line now reaches the popular Bishop Arts District. 
  • Every year, creative cooks get the chance to show off their latest State Fair of Texas concoction. They compete to see who can come up with the craziest fried food to sell to hungry fairgoers, and the fair announced its winners on Sunday.
