This year marked the 55th season of the the highly-touted and always-anticipated Brimfield outdoor antiques and collectibles show. The yearly event takes place in May, July and September each year, running from Tuesday to Sunday. Mr. Chat, my mom and I hit the road at approximately 9:00 a.m. on Saturday and our 66 miles drive from Boston took us 4 hours. That’s right … 4 LONG hours of crawling, stop-and-go, and a quick bathroom break. Note to self, avoid Brimfield on the weekend unless you leave the house well before sunrise. I can’t imagine the traffic being as hair-pulling on a leisurely Wednesday or Thursday, but maybe it’s just always busy during showtime.
