WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) — Sunday marked the final day at New England’s Great State Fair. It was a busy last weekend for the fair, with record-breaking attendance on Saturday.
Sunday was also Special Olympics Day at the Big E and hindered turned out for the opening ceremony. It was much-needed exposure, from the vast crowds visiting the fair.
“A lot of people don’t know it’s a year round organization, we have events going on throughout the whole year. so it’s a great way to get people involved,” Matt Vaghi said.
More than 1.3 million people have come through the gates of the fair this year.
