Info from the State Fair's website:
This year, the State Fair will host Sensory-Friendly Mornings every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Fair welcomes individuals with autism, in addition to individuals with other intellectual disabilities, their families, and anyone else who may benefit from a sensory-friendly experience. Modifications around the Fair will include sound and light adjustments on the Midway. In addition, the Fair will provide a guided itinerary for families to get the most out of their visit to the annual exposition during Sensory-Friendly Mornings. The Midway opens at noon on Wednesdays, and the usual sights and sounds of the Midway will come on at exactly 1 p.m. Guided itineraries to assist with planning will be posted to BigTex.com closer to the Fair.
