View Comments ()



    The State Fair of Texas will be "Big and Bright" in 2012.

    The State Fair of Texas announced their 2012 theme today -- so expect this year's iteration to be "Big and Bright."

    Of course, that means changing the lyrics from "Deep in the Heart of Texas" will be easy this year.

    For their 126th exposition, the State Fair says they'll be adding "high wattage attractions" to the Fair Park grounds -- including a Chinese Lantern Festival featuring displays as large as 50 feet high and 300 feet long.

    Crowd favorites like the Starlight Parade, Illumination Sensation and Midway Lights will also light up the night's sky in Fair Park.

    The Fair opens at 10 a.m. Friday, September 28, 2012.
