It’s almost here! The Eastern States Exposition, or as most call it, The Big E, will be opening the gates on September 14th. This fair is HUGE and has been pleasing the crowds since the fall of 1917. It is the largest fair in the northeast and known for the Big E Cream Puff and Craz-E Burger. Last year was my first trip there and you can bet I’ll be walking the grounds again this year. The Big E is much different from the smaller fairs I hit up each year. The size of this event left my mouth to the ground.
I always hated the first week of back to school after summer vacation. In grade school we had to compose a paper about our adventures over the summer. In high school, it was the topic of discussion for an entire hour or so. I used to sink down into my seat hoping the teacher would overlook my presence. There were a couple of years that I added some spice to my “What I Did On My Summer Vacation” paper. I had to compete with those papers that included mind blowing adventures that usually took place at Disney or some other novelty vacation spot. It was a difficult task. Most times it ended in epic fail. How could my adventures of hiking the woods, observing black bear at the dump and spending hours watching moose drink out of a marsh compare to a trip to Disney or SeaWorld?
