Fair Season

Even though I'm pretty bummed that summer is unofficially coming to a close in a week or two, it means that my favorite, favorite season is upon us. Fair Season!

I absolutely love fairs. This weekend kicks off the start to fair season with the Wolcott County Fair. I've never been, but I may just convince boyfriend to go tonight when he gets out of work. 

Next weekend is the Terryville Country Fair, which I have attended every year since I could remember. It's a fairly small fair, but they have livestock, the awards barn, plenty of games, ride and food. Mmmm the food.

But my absolute favorite, the largest fair in New England, is the Big E.
The Big E is located in Agawam, MA right down the road from Six Flags New England. It literally can take an entire day if you look at everything. They have live concerts (with some big names!) and sooooo much food. Good thing I do plenty of walking as well as eating. hahah. The unique feature is their state buildings. They have a state building for every state in New England. (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine). Inside the state buildings are local businesses or attraction vendors for that state. Like in Maine, they have an amazing baked potato station. In Vermont, amazing creamy chocolate milk. In Connecticut, Pez. Yes, we are manufacturers of Pez. haha. If you're ever in the area of Springfield/Agawam, MA def check it out. You won't be disappointed.

I need to pre-excersize before I stuff my face. There honestly should not be a 6 month period of fattening foods to be consumed, it's just not right. 
Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!
Hopefully I'll get some pics if I do go. =)

Have you ever been to a state fair?
What's your favorite thing to eat there?
