First weekend at the Big E

Hampden County

WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) — Sunday marked the end to the first Big E weekend of 2021, something that’s been two years in the making.

“They don’t know what they’re missing. I think it’s better than Florida. Better than Mickey Mouse,” Sandra Rivera said.

Sandra is a food vendor, who has prime real estate on the Big E grounds, right at the gate. She watches people come and go. A mother to 10, a grandmother to 22, she comes back each year not just for the pay,
but the people.

The Big E will continue through October 3.
