It’s time for the state fair! If it has been awhile since you’ve tasted fried peach cobbler-on-a stick, held hands on a Ferris wheel, admired the mirror-like finish on an automobile-of-the-future, caressed the silken coat of a goat, or simply joined the throngs of Texans who make the country’s largest state fair such a rollicking spectacle, we have one simple word for you: Go.

The film is available through the Mondells’ company Media Projects.
