The Big E.. New Englands Great State Fair.. And a Show by Terry Fator



I have never been to a state fair... mainly because I always thought Massachusetts didn't have one... Boy was I wrong... Not only do we have a state fair, we are joined by Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine for a whopping six state fair called The Big E in Western Mass. We first heard about the fair last year and even though it lasts for 3 weeks, we of course never made it. So this year we said that's it we're going, and when my hubby found out Terry Fator winner of America's Got Talent a few years ago, was preforming he got us tickets for my birthday. 

The fair is absolutely huge!! With food vendors everywhere it is dizzying trying to decide what to eat, everywhere you look there is sausage and peppers, fried everything, and I mean everything, from pickles,    (we tried them yum!!) to Oreos'. We decided to bypass all the vendors and go straight to the Avenue of States, which houses you guessed it the six states, each with there own building. Inside these buildings were various things indigenous to that state. We headed straight for Maine to get a Lobster Roll, and boy were they yummy, but of course we needed more food so we headed to Connecticut which claims to be the place where Chocolate Covered Bacon was born. A must try for any bacon and chocolate lover, and it tasted as expected delicious!! Sorry we ate it so fast I couldn't get a picture...

But lets get down to business the two reasons some people come to The Big E... The Big E Cream Puff and The Big E Crazy Burger... 

Lets start with the Cream Puff a fluffy cloud of heaven... 


The Outrageous Craz-E Burger...

 Ok so that my friends is a Bacon Cheeseburger sandwiched between two glazed donuts .... yes it may be a heart attack waiting to happen but worth the try...



And of course the Terry Fator concert was unbelievable, he is so talented and I love Winston the Turtle he is my favorite!! All in all it was a great birthday celebration and we will definitely be going back to the Big E next year!! 

P.S Yes my blog looks different... while trying to change some things up I deleted my template.. Which is why I have been MIA for a while.. UGHHH and now I'm stuck with this while I try to fix it...
