DALLAS (AP) - The State Fair of Texas opens Friday in Dallas with food, festivities and football as part of the 126th annual expo.

Organizers have chosen “Big and Bright” as this year’s theme. A Chinese Lantern Festival is part of the activities through Oct. 21 at Fair Park.

Free concerts include Kevin Costner & Modern West on Saturday, Kansas on Oct. 14, Kellie Pickler on Oct. 19 and the Commodores on Oct. 20.

Grambling State will face Prairie View A&M on Oct. 6 at the Cotton Bowl. Oklahoma takes on Texas on Oct. 13 in the Red River Rivalry football matchup.

Fans of Fritos snacks can turn out Monday to see a huge chili pie marking the 80th anniversary of the corn chips. Frito-Lay North America Inc. is based in nearby Plano.
