The Big E

If you live in the Northeast or will be visiting the area before September 30, plan a stop at The Eastern States Exposition, otherwise known as The Big E! The Big E is a large scale fair highlighting all that is good about the Eastern US. There are lots of things to do, including traditional carnival rides and games, concerts, agriculture contests and exhibitions, and my personal favorite - eating! Each state has an area that contains things specific to that state, including a food item!




My those are some large pumpkins you have sir!


The might Clydesdale - such a spectacular animal!

I LOVE the Big E!!! I remember going to the buildings for each of the New England states and deciding what we HAD to eat! We decided on eating in "Vermont" where we had apple pie and homemade cheddar!
