Hats of October 15

Hats of October 15, originally uploaded by Mikey Brick.

Big Tex Fair for greeted visitors to the Texas State Fair for sixty years. He was reincarnated from a giant Santa Claus and installed at the fair in 1952. Four days after I shot this photo as my hat photo of the day, he went up in flames on the final weekend of the 2012 Texas State Fair, on his 60th birthday. Already forty-nine feet tall and sporting a 75-gallon hat, fair officials claim a new, bigger and better Tex will be ready for the 2013 State Fair of Texas.
