I know, I know. I was hoping against hope. But COVID-19 isn’t going away. It’s getting stronger and it’s becoming more populous. And a two-week event in Massachusetts that draws millions of fans during its run is not what we want to keep the spread of COVID-19 down.
Yesterday morning, the Big E’s President posted this message on YouTube.
The Big E is cancelling its 2020 season. The last time the Big E went dark, it was during World War II.
That’s how dangerous and scary COVID-19 has become.
Hey, I already know I’m disappointed. No eclairs, no cream puffs, and no photo ribbons in the New England Center for me.
Well, except for this photo. 😀
The other day, I received my prize money for this photo’s success, so that check is on its way to my personal “Rainy Day” fund.
Every other fair I normally enter is either closed or closing; the New York State Fair is the only one that has not yet announced its decisions, and the Washington State Fair (where I sent digital entries) is still operational, but for how long I have no idea.
COVID-19 sucks eggs. Let’s just call it as it is.
On the positive, I have a ton of photos all ready for 2021, not to mention whatever I can assemble from now until then. Twice as many images, with the best ones still being available for future use.
But yeah… 2020 keeps getting worse.
And I do not like it, not one little bit.
