The Southwest Airlines State Fair Classic will bring thousands of football fans to the Cotton Bowl tomorrow, Saturday Oct. 1, for an epic showdown between the football teams and marching bands of Prairie View A&M and Grambling State universities.
DART can take you right to the gates to experience the beating drums, cheering fans and a football match that has been played at Fair Park since the 1980s.
Kickoff begins at 4 p.m., so make sure you leave early. A high volume of visitors are expected that day on the trains and at the fair, so be sure to plan your trip in advance.
DART and the Trinity Railway Express (TRE) will provide additional service to the game. Passengers riding DART Rail and the TRE to downtown Dallas can transfer easily to the Green Line, which will be available approximately every 15 minutes between Victory and Lawnview stations from 9:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Riding DART gives fans a choice of two Green Line stations — Fair Park, located on Parry Avenue at the main entrance to the fairgrounds, or MLK, Jr., located south of R.B. Cullum Blvd., close to Gate 6 and the Cotton Bowl Stadium.
