Another fair season fades away...

SheepIt seems I blinked, and it went from Labor Day to September 30. With all the work that goes into the preparation of The Big E, the year of planning, the build up to opening day, it’s hard to believe that that 17-days are gone like that! 

It’s a bittersweet feeling as the fair comes to a close. The Big E ending means normal sleeping hours and regular meals, but at the same time it’s the end of the experience for me. Next year, there will be a different person sitting at my desk, writing blog posts, maintaining Facebook and Twitter, and interviewing the Hosts of the Day.
It’s been such a privilege to be back at The Big E and working with such wonderful people. I’ve had an amazing time in the midst of the chaos.

From racing ESE President Eugene Cassidy down the yellow slide to taking silly pictures on the green screen in Walking in a Winter Wonderland, it’s really been a blast.




 
Double Rainbow over fairgrounds
Our attendance was record breaking this year! We broke seven records before Sunday: six of them for daily attendance and one for overall fair attendance. Before Saturday was even over, The Big E had broken it s all time attendance record. It’s definitely fun to be a part of a historic year.

And to top it all off, the Fair ended with a gorgeous double rainbow.

Until next year!
