DALLAS, Texas — There's a big change for Big Tex at the State Fair of Texas this year.
He won't be wearing a mask this year.
Fair organizers say Big Tex is fully vaccinated.
He stands outdoors and since he's 55-feet tall, he's socially distanced from everybody else.
You may remember that last year, Big Tex wore a mask for the first time in state fair history.
It was custom-made and slightly bigger than a twin-sized blanket.
The State Fair of Texas opens Sept. 24 in Dallas.
