    Edited to add, I have a huge lot in my area where they hold one of the biggest fairs in the North East every September. Not this year though. Damn COVID. They are good with me doing some relic hunting there. Some interesting finds.

    @1630Boston Yes!!! Been wanting to try there for years but I didn’t think they would allow it. They were very accommodating. I occasionally give a Dunkin’ gift card to the attendant at the gate.

    A lot of history behind the Big E @Downtown1974

    Opening day 1916. Admission one dollar

    for adults, twenty-five cents for kids. The Eastern States Agricultural and Industrial Exposition opened its doors to spread the word and bring agriculture to the region.

    “So a fellow by the name of Joshua Loring Brooks came to Springfield in the late 1800s, and he opened up a business called the Brooks Bank Note Company and he was a lithographer. Very, very successful. And as the last century turned, he recognized that agriculture in New England was really struggling as the big farms out in the Midwest were taking over food production,” says The Big E’s President, Gene Cassidy. “So our farmers in New England have to be very innovative in order to make a living. And Eastern States continues to be a place where they can exchange innovation and ideas to be able to be the best they can be.”

    From the beginning, Joshua Brooks built the coliseum in a rather quick form in hopes of becoming an agricultural springboard for the fair, and it did just that.

    Went to the Big E last year. First time and enjoyed it. I think one of the meals was a camel burger which I would pass on if offered again but Was worth trying once.

    @pcgs69 .... I would pass on a camel burger... Tried camel once, it is definitely an acquired taste....Cheers, RickO
