The Queens County Farm Museum hosts the annual Queens County Fair this weekend out on the Nassau County border. Pray for good weather because there's going to be pig racing. Other attractions include the Amazing Maize Maze, carnival rides, pie-eating and corn-husking contests, hayrides, petting zoo, and make-your-own scarecrow. Plus there's Irish and German music, blue-ribbon vegetables, and food vendors. The carnival rides are lots of fun, but can be pricey, especially since there's also additional admissions fee.
And your young kids will always get a kick out of hand-feeding the goats and sheep.
