Big Tex was set on fire will he return next year

The iconic animated figure known as “Big Tex,” which has greeted visitors of the State Fair of Texas for 60 years, was destroyed by fire on Friday.

Fair representative Sue Gooding said the blaze started inside Big Tex Friday morning on the fair grounds in South Dallas, ahead of the event’s closing weekend.

Despite what she called a “sad” setback, Gooding said work would begin to replace Big Tex for next year’s fair.
