Chicopee, Massachusetts

“I’ve been to the Big E every year for the last thirty-two years and let me tell you,” Chicopee resident James Puwalski mansplained to Tofu Curtain, “you’ve got to show up ready. You’ve got to get a Franklin County, a Cummington, maybe a Three County under your belt before Agawam. Trust me. Lay down a solid foundation of hot dogs and fried dough before you start the Big ‘E’ting. Get it? Big ‘E’ting! Ha!”
