What's Fair?

Last month when the Eastern States Exposition (The Big E), the largest agricultural event on the eastern seaboard known as "New England's Greatest State Fair," was in Springfield, MA, I met my daughter and her honey along with a friend of theirs to take it all in.

With far too much fair food available, it was hard to simply walk by the vendors without inhaling the various aromas.  As for me, I ate way to much however everything was scrumptious (the hot cinnamon/sugar mini donuts (bag of 20); the grilled steak topped with peppers and onions on a warm roll; about half of a bloomin' onion with dip, of course) followed by several bottles of water.

As always, the Clydesdales were our favorites although when I saw all the "bum-bums" lined up, I melted...:)

just seeing, saying, and sharing...

What's Fair?

Hearing about all that yummy fair food is making me hungry. I didn't go to our local fair this year.

The state Fair is a fun time. The food/donuts sound yummy. I love all the fair critters. The bum-bums lined up is cute. Great captures! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, Enjoy your weekend. PS, thanks for the visit and comment.
That really is the BEST fun! I haven't been to one in years but it's always something fun to do! Hugs!
We went to the Big E a year or so after we moved to New England. I have to agree with you, JP, it was quit the food experience. Maybe we will return again because there was so much to see...and eat!
That looks and sounds like a “real” old fashioned state or county fair and I am in love! The one we used to love here in Oregon has become nothing much but a carnival and commercial building. I was so disappointed last year.
What a fun day!! I love fairs, and I love fair food - funnel cakes have always been at the top of my list of "must haves." I did try deep-fried snicker bars at the last fair I went to. It was just okay. Next time, I'll try the deep-fried Oreos instead! :-)
First DH took me to the Expo when we lived in Webster, MA. Even as a farm girl, I never knew holsteins got that big!
