A guide for the adventurous student who wants to enjoy Fall but needs a little help.
Hey! If you are reading this, it is because you want to have a fun Fall without stressing too much about the planning. And maybe get some cute pics, too? So, without wasting too much time, here is an amazing place near for you to go to this Fall!
From Sept. 15 to Oct. 1
What to do at The Big E?
Eat: There will be so many food trucks for any craving you may have. Anything cider and pumpkin spice!
Shows: Every day there is a new form of entertainment. This year, Zedd, Third Blind Eye, Christ Young, and many other artists will perform at the fair.
Animals: Cute animals in the house for you to melt with love.
Vendors: So many cute local and non-local stores show off their talents. I suggest buying at least something to support them!
Rides and Games: So many cool rides and fun games!
Avenue of States: The main thing at The Big E is this over here! This is an avenue with six buildings. Each building represents a state from New England. Each state house has food, clothes, animals, seasonal decorations, etc., representing each state better.
And much, much more!
Why should you go? Let me tell ya! It’s honestly a really cool fair, with so many great things to do and see. It’s like a normal fair but on steroids. It’s also nice to get out of the norm and experience something new in another state. I know school can be stressful, so take a day to enjoy the simple things with family and friends.
