One way to meet tree huggers
DALLAS (AP) - October 17, 2011 (WPVI) -- Cliff Spenger spends his days covered with leaves and bark.
He's the Tree Walker at the State Fair of Texas.
His costume includes a grayish trunk, stilts and a Spanish moss beard.
Spenger poses for pictures and gives kids high-fives with his long branches.
And he says there are a lot of tree huggers at the fair.
Spenger tells The Dallas Morning News he loves the fair-goers and they love him.
