State Fair Package at Renaissance Dallas Richardson Hotel Offers Tickets, DART Passes, More

RICHARDSON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 10/07/13 -- Texas is synonymous with "big," so it should be no surprise that its state fair is of epic proportions. The fair, held at Fair Park, runs through October 20, 2013, and the Renaissance Dallas Richardson Hotel is offering a package that makes visiting the fair easy and affordable.

This north Dallas hotel, listed by the fair as a preferred hotel, is walking distance to the DART Rail station, which takes visitors directly to Fair Park. With the fair package, guests will get two adult DART Rail passes per night, two adult tickets to the Texas State Fair per night, late checkout, onsite hotel parking and a deluxe room with one king or two double beds; breakfast rates are also available.

Whether visiting from out of town or looking for an affordable family staycation, this upscale Dallas hotel package is the perfect opportunity to experience a Texas tradition. Visitors will find traditional fair attractions including a Midway with a Ferris wheel, carousel and thrill rides; livestock shows, an animal nursery, cow-milking demo and pig races; and a market with crafts and more. Auto-focused fair attractions include a Truck Zone, BMX bike show and Chevrolet Ride & Drive, where fairgoers can take a spin in a 2014 Impala, 2014 Silverado Crew Cab, 2014 Silverado Double Cab, 2014 Camaro Coupe, 2013 Volt, 2014 Cruze Turbo Diesel or 2014 Corvette Stingray.

Kids will be spoiled for choice when it comes to things to do and see at the fair. Farmer Mike whittles giant pumpkins into three-dimensional faces, large-gauge model trains chug their way through an elaborate setting and a giant sing-along lets anyone be a star. Grownups aren't left out of the fun, with celebrity chef demos, wine tastings, special museum exhibits and live performances on the main stage from acts including Will Hoge, Cory Morrow, Turnpike Troubadours, Kristian Bush, Emblem 3, Kacey Musgraves, Casting Crowns and Duelo. When night falls, the fairgrounds shine with Illumination Sensation, featuring water, music, pyrotechnics and lights, and a Starlight Parade featuring illuminated floats and giant puppets.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
