Hampden County

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Big E set record attendance numbers last week and that trend is carrying into this weekend.

The 2nd weekend of the fair typically sees the largest crowds. According to the Big E, 89-thousand people attended Friday.

More people are expected Saturday thanks to summer-like weather.

One New Hampshire man spoke with 22News about how much he enjoyed the weather and the Big E.

Mitch Foster told 22News, “It’s been a great time, it’s beautiful weather, it’s going to be really busy. We got some family in town so we all came together.”

If you plan on heading to the fairgrounds on Saturday night, Sugar Ray, Naughty By Nature are performing.

And the local brewer showcase is on until 11 o’clock on Saturday night, and all day Sunday.
