All that was left of Big Tex, besides the frame, was his arms, after the icon of the State Fair of Texas burned Friday morning, Oct. 19, 2012, in Fair Park, Friday, Oct. 19, 2012 in Dallas. Big Tex, the metal cowboy whose slow drawl of "Howdy, folks!" made him an icon of the State Fair of Texas for 60 years, was destroyed Friday when flames engulfed his 52-foot-tall frame.
