Somehow I had missed that large country fairs like the ones I enjoyed as a girl in England existed here in the United States! My marketing director came back from a weekend at The Eastern States Exposition- also known as “The Big E“. She regaled me with tales of llamas and racing miniature pigs, an insane collection of fried foods (including a fried martini!) sheep shearing, jams and jellies and needlepoint as well as rides and games. I was so excited I immediately put the event on MY calendar for next September. As West Springfield, Massachusetts is about 3.5 hours away, an overnight in a family-friendly hotel or AirBnB is the way to go. I promise to send a reminder out NEXT Fall but mark your calendars!
