Obviously, the only picture that I took of TJ and myself was taken on my cell phone.
For the first time in five years, we were actually home in Massachusetts and able to attend The Big E. To say that I was excited is an understatement.
There's no better way to celebrate the sights, sounds, and tastes of Fall in New England than at The Big E.
From local beer, to Maine Baked Potatoes, Massachusetts Lobster Rolls, New Hampshire Maple Candy, Vermont Cheddar Cheese, corn dogs, cotton candy, caramel apples, sausage grinders, fried dough, fried pickles, fried Snickers, chocolate covered bacon, sugared doughnuts ... there's something for everyone, and trust me, the tummy ache that you have the next day is absolutely worth it.
There are also multiple concerts (we saw DJ Pauly D and guess what? I was (fist)PUMPED!), an incredible array of crafts and local goodies, livestock barns, tractor pulls (yes, I'm into that), the Clydesdale's horses, and more.
The Big E is a loud, tacky, silly, and smelly tradition - it's good old fashioned fun that I'm so happy I was home to celebrate with TJ and our friends.
Have you ever been to The Big E?
Do you get as excited as I do about the local fair?
