AGAWAM, Mass. (WGGB/WSHM) -Another summer break has come and gone for local students, but before they head back to school this week, many enjoyed one final hurrah this weekend at Six flags New England.

It was a fun afternoon for many, we saw kids of all ages with their friends and family soaking up the wonderful weather and cherishing their final Sunday before the new school year.

Before students across New England have to go back to worrying about the lunch bell, they spent one last day taking in the sights and sounds of summer at Six Flags New England.

“We’ve been here basically since its opened so we’ve done basically everything,” said CJ Firetto of Ellington, CT.

Western Mass News spoke with students across the region, including Neil Rann who said a day at the amusement park is a perfect way to wrap up the season with his friends and family.

“This is probably the best way to spend the last day of summer for me couldn’t have imagined anything better,” Rann said.

CJ Firetto traveled to Agawam to make new memories with his family before returning to the classroom.

“It’s just amazing to be here and this is only our second time here,” Firetto said.

“We are so excited families choose us as the destination to have fun in New England.

Western Mass News caught up with Six Flags New England spokesperson Jenn McGrath, who told Western Mass News that this summer was a good one for the park, with a return to normalcy amid the COVID-19 pandemic

“So many of our guests are really just saying thank you and having a great time as a family this summer,” McGrath said.
