The State Fair of Texas returns with a big-bang this year. The largest state fair in America, the State Fair expects an estimated 3,000,000+ visitors ready to experience the best in food, fun and games over the course of the 24-day event. Hosted at historic Fair Park for over 150 years, the State Fair is noted for it’s iconic 52 ft. tall mascot "Big Tex" welcoming guests with park announcements. Fair Park is also home to North America’s largest Ferris wheel named the "Texas Star", as well as host to the annual "Red River Rivalry" collegiate football game, pitting Big XII Conference powerhouses, the University of Oklahoma Sooners versus the University of Texas Longhorns, considered one of the biggest rivalries in all of American sports.
One of the new attractions for 2010 is an 8,000 ft2 Greenhouse hosing the Southern Living™ Plant Collection: Speaker Series, featuring top writers from Southern Living™ magazine, and garden gurus offering tips to visitors. Leading into the green house fair-goers will discover a 3,000 ft2 landscaped area of SYNLawn® artificial grass installed by one of our newest SYNLawn® Authorized Suppliers, Texas Turf Solutions of Dallas.
Upon taking a closer look at SYNLawn®’s un-matched beauty, durability and quality construction, SYNLawn® became the natural choice for State Fair organizers who elected to have the artificial grass installed to accommodate the anticipated high-volume of foot-traffic. The natural appearance of SYNLawn®’s synthetic grass complemented with traditional landscape bushes, plants and flower-beds create a beautiful addition to any home. Visitors to this year’s State Fair of Texas are encouraged to stop by the greenhouse (FREE with admission) near the Texas Star to experience SYNLawn® for themselves while enjoying some of the Fair’s delicious delicacies, or perhaps take a relaxing break before jumping aboard the 212 ft. Ferris wheel.
SYNLawn® would like to welcome Texas Turf Solutions to the SYNLawn® family, and compliment them on an outstanding installation.
