Meet Big Tex, the State Fair of Texas’ 55-foot-tall, talking, terrifying, and newly fireproof (for a reason) cowboy statue

If you’re watching Texas vs. Oklahoma, you’re probably also seeing Big Tex.

The State Fair of Texas is one of the Longhorn State’s biggest annual events, attracting thousands of people each year to Dallas. It’s also the site of the annual Longhorns vs. Sooners rivalry game.

One of the most iconic features is “Big Tex,” a 55-foot giant cowboy statue that greets fair visitors as they walk in.
