The Big E continues this week, running until October 2! Also known as the Eastern States Exposition, The Big E is the Northeast’s largest agricultural fair that features crafts, cooking demonstrations, concerts, and traditional fair events including a giant pumpkin and squash weigh off for kids, cheese and pie competitions and livestock competitions!

On Thursday, September 29, MassWildlife hosts another Wildlife Habitat Site Walk at 6p.m. in Chesterfield at the Hiram Fox Wildlife Management Area.
