Texas Under Fall Skies: Fun Things To Do This September


Texas is definitely the place to be for fun this September. Texas can get hot in the summer, but the ninth month of year is usually a lot more comfortable and the perfect time to have a little fun like a true Texan.

For one, there are some great gambling opportunities in Texas. You could also check out the Redflush online casino which will be a rush, especially with the choices available in the casino. Keep in mind that Texas is big on race cars, therefore it would be fun playing car racing video slot games.

Gambling is not all that you can do in Texas in the September because you can also hit the State Fair of Texas, which is said to be the largest fair in the state. The event actually lasts the entire month of September, so you will not run out of things to do during your visit. The event highlights local talent, live music, and carnival rides.

The fair would not be a Texas fair without food, which is also a big part of the entire event. Make sure you come ready to delight your taste buds with the local food flair. The people who visit the fair come from all over the place, including Oklahoma as both Texas and Oklahoma challenge each other every year in a game of good old American football.

A good Texas visit would not be complete without visiting at least one BBQ championship where you might sample some of the best BBQ in Texas. One of the championships is called the World Championship BBQ Goat Cook-Off, which takes place in Hill Country town in Brady. It happens just over Labor Day, so be ready to have an awesome culinary adventure.

Texas also holds another BBQ cook-off called the Do Dat Barbecue Cook-Off. This particular contest has been alive and well for over two decades, highlighting some of the best BBQ makers in Eastern Texas. The contest takes place in Nacogdoches. You will also be treated to more live music and a lot of auctions where you might walk off with a great deal.

Oh, and all of those interested in something a little more out-of-the-box might be interested in the Fantastic Fest, which takes place in Texas, too. The Fantastic Fest takes place at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, which is in South Lamar right in the middle of Austin. It is considered one of the largest genre film festivals in the United States.

You can expect some of the most insane or ridiculous plots; you are there to have a little fun and take in crazy action, horror, and science fiction films. You might also meet people with the same kind of mind who are interested in plots that Hollywood probably would not have the gall to truly commit too. The fest takes place from September 22nd to the 29th.

It is clear to see that there is a lot that you can do in the month of September in Texas; all that is left is booking your flight and letting it all soak in.
