“Yarns and Ewes!”
Review of The Big E

Reviewed November 6, 2012

This was the fifth year of the West Springfield, Mass. Fiber Festival.
We had already been to Rhinebeck's Fiber Festival and there is no comparison, as this festival would fit into a corner of Rhinebeck's. I think in another few years Big E Fiber Festival will grow and only get better. The best part was the building was heated!

My husband and I went on a rainy Tuesday and still had a lot of fun. The crowds were light, but all of the indoor activites were still going on. Unfortunately a number of the parades and outdoor shows were limited. I would definitely go again. The state capitals were interesting, but as a city girl, the most fun I had was checking out the ox pull.

If this is your first visit to the Big E, you're in for a real treat!!! There is so much to see and do. From music to different acts to the circus, you will find so many ways to spend your time. Add shopping to the list and you are set for the day. There is something for everyone at this great state fair. The daily parades showcase each of the New England states and surrounding cities. It's a great time. Bring lots of money and wear comfy shoes and you're all set!

The Big E used to be fun but now its to crowded and it seems people only go there to stuff their faces with all kinds of fried foods.

There are so many things to see that we walk all day until we are exhausted. The circus is a great show and there are concerts and shows in public areas. Of course, the food is incredible, almost too many choices from deep fried oreos and deep fried kool aid to the very famous Big E cream puffs and eclairs. Lots of fun!
