A leafy rainbow landscape bursts into the minds of most with the words, "autumn in New England," but many locals also associate this phrase with "The BIG E," more formally known as "The Eastern States Exposition."
The BIG E functions as a centralized state fair for all six New England states: Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire. A permanent fairground was erected in West Springfield, Massachusetts and it hosts this huge festival for a few weeks every autumn. Here are a few images from the BIG E, which ended last month. I'll be posting more in the near future.
If you're vegan, here's an enormous slide, ridden by children on burlap sacks. Fun for everyone!
