The Boss (a native New Englander) has been telling me about “The Big E” for as long as I can remember. The Big E, formally called The Eastern States Exposition, is held in West Springfield, Mass. every year for 2 weeks in September. The Boss and his sibs grew up going to this fair and finally this year we were in the right place at the right time with a little extra cash to spare so yesterday we set out for our first carnival date!
This is friend dough. Where I’m from, we have funnel cake but The Boss AND HIS ENTIRE FAMILY told me several times that fried dough and funnel cake ARE NOT THE SAME THING. We topped our fried dough with powdered sugar and cinnamon.
No fair is complete without a Ferris wheel!
Love this photo of a couple who just won a prize at the Angry Birds game!
The trusty old SWINGS! for all those who are too brave for the carousal but a still shy of the coasters.
And yes, my main squeeze won me a prize playing darts!
Larry the Zebra says hi!
