SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Fairgoers celebrated Maine Day at the Big E Saturday by enjoying all the delectable foods the state has to offer.
Maine Day showcases what makes the state of Maine unique.
Dozens waited in long lines outside the Maine State Building for one of the most popular Big E delicacies: the baked potato.
Fairgoers told 22News it’s worth the wait.
