DALLAS (KRLD) - We've officially wrapped up another year of the State Fair, as Big Tex was taken down from his post in Fair Park today. However, the Fair has left us with something to get excited about for next year.

Big Tex had on a brand new pair of boots this year, designed by Lucchese as they always are. However, for the first time, the Fair is calling for fans to be the creators of Big Tex's new boots for 2019.

"The winner gets the satisfaction of seeing their artwork for 24 days straight at the State Fair," says spokeswoman Karissa Condoianis.

Designs that are drawn, painted or illustrated on the special templates can be submitted until January 31st. Those will be whittled down to 10, before a final winner is chosen in early March. That winner will work with Lucchese to bring their design to life.
