As each day passes we get one day closer to the start of the 2013 Big E! Crunch time is upon us as we come into the last two weeks of preparation and set-up before the Fair begins. As we look outside the windows, everything is coming together. Tents are going up, vendors are arriving and the excitement on the grounds has been kicked up a few more notches.
|Farwell Party for Caroline Lasorsa|
Last week we said, “see you soon” to the Marketing department Summer Writer, Caroline Lasorsa. She is now back at UMass Amherst to complete her senior year. This week we begin anew as we welcome Anne-Alise Pietruska and Lauren Silvis to the Department for the Fall Fair season. Pietruska is a Communications major at Westfield State University and Silvis is a recent Marketing Communications/Advertising graduate of Western New England University.
Pietruska and Silvis are honored that they have been given the opportunity to promote The Big E. Working behind the scenes in the Marketing department and understanding all that goes into orchestrating the Fair is incredible – and they are proud to be a part of it. It’s a chance of a lifetime that will enhance their skills and experiences.
Both girls will be assisting Eastern States Exposition staff members and performing various tasks around the fairgrounds – from writing press releases to assisting at traditional Fair competitions and contests. To see the girls’ most recent work, make sure you keep watching The Big E on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Blogger.
The Big E opens next Friday, Sept. 13 and runs through Sept. 29. The 97th annual Big E officially begins at 8am. Join us on Opening Day for Be a Kid for a Day when you only pay children’s price admission and Military Appreciation Day – ID required for free admission for:
§ Active duty military personnel
