The North Texas Fair and Rodeo kicks off this weekend in Denton.
Starting Friday, the North Texas Fairgrounds will play host to livestock exhibits, midway rides, carnival food, pig races and, of course, rodeo events.
The fair actually runs from Aug. 18 through 26, so there's plenty of time to get in on the action. And there will be great country artists playing on weekends, including Josh Abbott, Ryan Bingham and others. Tickets range $15-$20 per day depending on when you go, and kids 6 and under get in free.
