Today, the State Fair of Texas held its annual unveiling of the colossal clothing that will be worn by Big Tex at this year’s fair. The Dallas Police Department was surprised and honored by a new accessory that was added to Big Tex’s outfit this year. Situated prominently on the front of his shirt is a blue ribbon with a Dallas Police badge.
Karissa Condoianis of the State Fair of Texas said, “the ribbon is in memory of those DART and Dallas Police officers who lost their lives in the line of duty on Thursday, July 7, 2016. Big Tex will wear it for the entire 2016 State Fair.”
The Dallas Police Department is very touched by this show of support from our partners at the State Fair of Texas. We are so grateful to have our fallen brothers honored at such a famed event in our city. Thank you again to the State Fair of Texas!
