Think of it as 17 days of doing and eating stuff your parents and doctors would rather you didn’t, and with a Ferris wheel in the background.
The annual fair of the Eastern States Exposition — the Big E — begins today and runs through Sept. 30 at the fairgrounds on Memorial Avenue in West Springfield.
Midway rides let you play around with gravity and the Big E Cream Puff is a small planet of depravity.
Big E officials said 1,201,428 people attended last year’s fair.
“It’s a place where you can find anything, whether it’s a commercial product or a food product. The shopping is unending. There’s so much here, there’s something that appeals to everyone,” said Eugene J. Cassidy, Big E president and chief executive officer.
Cassidy marks his first Big E as CEO but he has been a Big E employee since 1993, when he became director of finance. He took over in June from G. Wayne McCary, who retired after having led the Big E since 1991.
